For this altered book, i had to use a vintage photo and make up something about the boy's life. I chose to create his identity as a marbles champ, and did research on the U.S National Marble Championship, which started in the 1920's. The words stamped on the right side are all marbles terms, and the tags pull out and explain the terms and give some other info about the marbles championship, like the fact that it was integrated 25 years before Jackie Robinson played for the Dodgers. I love doing research like this.
