Publisher Comments:

When graphic artist Ryan Maconochie became a father he searched for a baby book that melded his design aesthetic with the opportunity to chronicle his daughters first year. He couldnt find anything—so he made one. This Is Your Book gives parents an opportunity to record more than just the vital statistics about their babys birth. It also offers an opportunity to reflect on the pop culture that surrounds the big day. From basic info such as babys height, birth hospital, and hair color, to amusing recollections of all the baby names that were ruled out, This Is Your Book utilizes current events, maps, and of-the-moment factoids to tell the story of the childs first year and will become a fun stimulus for conversation and education with children in the years to come.

Praise for This is Your Book:

“Youve seen baby books before. Maybe youve even made a scrapbook for your kid. But youve never seen a book like this. Its modern, beautiful, and full of unique prompts about pop culture.”


“Ryan Maconochie is building this time machine in paper form for his generation of parents.”


“One-of-a-kind.” —Time Out Chicago Kids
