Memoir, is a magazine about the life of Jill Memoir Reese. She is an 80-year-old lady that never could follow her dreams because of the time area she was born in. But she never gives up hope and makes the best of it. In the magazine, you can read Table Manners from Emily Post, 1947 and The Good Wife’s Guide from Housekeeping Monthly, 1955. The images that you will see through the magazine are a rebellious act against the standard of how women need to behave according to the text. The magazine represents the struggle of Jill Memoir Reese that she had to face, but fought against so she could reach her dreams as much as possible. Maybe Jill Memoir Reese will never see the light of day or she will be me when I will be older.
