Leave Your Kids A Paper Trail

Not your everyday guide to life, this keepsake journal is a fun, non-traditional way for parents to record their experiences and share hard-earned wisdom with their teenage or adult child.

Each of the 12 chapters lets you tell a specific story and give advice about universal topics that might not come up in everyday conversations. Topics such as "blazing your own trail," "bumps in the road," "questioning authority," "friendship," "family," and more are accompanied by inspirational quotes and an instructional guide with examples, questions and prompts to help you tell your stories.

Four lined pages per chapter. Cotton cover. Hand-bound by Jason Thompson in Rhode Island.

Jason Thompson began making hand-bound books in 1991 after being inspired by one that his wife gave him as a birthday present. The original books were made with simple hand tools: a knife, bone folder, glue brush, needle and thread.

As his company grew, Thompson hired more people and moved the business to six increasingly larger studios. His wife Ilira eventually joined the team as general manager, and now, Thompson employs a team of skilled artisans who create quality albums and books from hand.
