US-based artist, Julianne Aguliar, is the creator behind the Together, As Always project. The interactive digital archive consists of personal messages found in second-hand books. Each note is carefully cataloged with a photo of the cover, the message found inside, and detailed information about the book. The note is also tagged with keywords, making the whole collection easily searchable.

Aguliar curated the books by going to various thrift stores around Texas. After the books were photographed and cataloged, they were then returned to the store, “assuring their continued journey from hand to hand.”
