The Things My Mothers Taught Me

Mother's Day is next month and we've been thinking about mum-themed newspapers. A newspaper makes a lovely keepsake – a slightly more grown up version of the fingerprint cards we used to bring home from school. But unlike a card, it's something that can be shared with family and friends, too.

The Things My Mothers Taught Me is a lovely example. Clio Meldon took portraits of some influential women in her life (mums and otherwise) and asked them: 'What is the most important thing you’ve ever learned?' The responses she received were 'beautiful, funny, intelligent, and inspiring.' She collected them all in a digital tabloid and printed a short run of 20 copies.

She gave the newspapers to friends and family, and included the project in an end of year exhibition for her college degree. You can find The Things My Mothers Taught Me in The Newsagent and also view the project on ISSUU. Thank you for printing with us!
