The exercise of creating an annual photo book, but more importantly, flipping through it later, serves as an encouraging reminder of all that we managed to accomplish in the space of a year—especially in the absence of that elusive sense of purpose.
What a pleasant surprise.
Even though the layout is exactly the same as it has been for the last several years, I decided to update the code so that the data defining the book is separate from the code that generates it.
It’s a book after all, an old school, physical book, one that you have to open with your hands in order to see what’s inside. It’s nice to be reminded of that as well.
