The pages of The Confession Album contain 100 questions. Your part is collecting the answers - whether from a loved one, or yourself - in the course of an evening, or over a lifetime. If you're answering for yourself, The Confession Album offers an opportunity to gain and share the solace of self-expression; a way to relay knowledge or impart wisdom; store a little data about what matters in the old-fashioned way, by putting pen to paper. If you're collecting someone else's answers - whether together in person or by inviting them to respond alone and share with you later - The Confession Album is above all an opportunity to bond. To lend your ears and give your love. The Confession Album might be used to mark a birthday or anniversary. As an activity to anchor a family trip or weekend with friends. At the very least, it beats a Greeting Card or social media quiz. At best, it creates a small but thoughtful legacy - recording thought, and hard-won wisdom, to advise and inspire. For Aspiring Writers, The Confession Album removes one more barrier to putting pen to paper. The Confession Album is designed to encourage you to make a start, to help writers find and refine their voice on the page.

Misplacing your wallet, forgetting where you parked your car, or getting your friend's birthday wrong: these are just some of the many common memory slips we all experience from time to time. And such cognitive lapses don't just plague the elderly: the most common worry of people over 40 is memory loss. A recent study by Newcastle University, featured on BBC news, showed that art therapy has greater benefits than puzzles and exercises when it comes to improving memory function. Engaging the brain in new and creative ways may be the key to a sharper 'younger' mind. Helping to enhance your brain's cognitive function through art therapy techniques, this book contains 30 intricate line drawings of cats and big cats, with space on the opposite page for you to copy the illustration and some helpful hints to start you off. There is also the opportunity to colour in and to create some of your own illustrations as you progress. Gradually becoming more challenging, every page will help to stimulate parts of the brain that are vital for memory retention. With this book you will draw your way to a younger brain.
