About

Welcome my friend, Memento Monstrum will be a vintage photo album of my friends and me. The album features 41 illustrated post cards (35 single photos and 6 group shots) on 28 pages.

What will the photos look like? 

Each single photo is a postcard! You can take it out of the album and send it to your friends or hang them on your wall! There will be two different sorts of postcards: The single postcards show one character in a given stage of his life (105 mm x 148 mm).The album features 35 single post cards.

Here are some examples from Otto the Werewolf:

Additionally there will be six group post cards in the album. They will show a group shot of my friends and me together. Each of these post cards complete one chapter of our life. They will be 105 mm x 210 mm.

Here are some examples: Us having fun in the kindergarden 1777, at the university 1805 and our last group shot 1911:
