A year ago this week, my husband's grandfather passed away and while going through all of his belongings, my father-in-law found his old passport from Italy. He gave it to me for scanning, and I thought it was such a lovely thing! I love old documents {as you can probably tell from my website} as the handwriting is usually scripted beautifully in ink, the stamps are quite interesting or foreign, and the photos are dramatic in black and white. A far cry from our modern day passports! This one is laid out graphically as if on purpose. I am planning to print an enlarged version to be framed on our wall - it looks like art! And what a lovely way to remember Pete's grandfather.
