This year is gonna be the best year of my life.
2010 artist group Ropa started to collect diaries from a whole century, written by teenage girls around Sweden. Hundreds of contributions of motley pages added and put together as one. – Dagboken 1904 – 2012 författad av Tonårstjejen (The Diary of Teenage Girl 1904-2012), released in 115 unique hand-bounded copies. In one way it is a archive over the teenage girl through a century. Pages of both the everyday life and the magnificent. Words about disappointment, doubt, love, sex, identity and the transformation from a girl into a young woman.
One goal is to reach out to young people today and hopefully be if not for comfort, so of interest.
Dagboken is selected to Svensk Bokkonst 2012.
