This is a book to make your own. Fill the pages with your thoughts, dreams, memories and ambitions. Explore your world and make your mark by reflecting on your experiences.  Cut and paste, create and play, collage and keep.

Collage and Keep  is a visual journal and keepsake where the reader is encouraged to participate in collage based activities that explore and reflect on their own experience and perspective of life. Whilst some pages seek a more personal engagement, for example relating to memory or desire, others simply provide a space to ‘ recreate your favourite book cover’ or produce a ‘ collage quilt’ using collected ephemera from friends and family. Including helpful tips and basic principles of collage, the reader is guided to source materials from their everyday world and to look for what is beautiful, inspiring or unusual to them.

* Collage your three greatest achievements * Create your perfect view * Tell the story of your favourite record * Fill a page with bright ideas * What make you hot? What makes you cold? * Make a paperchain of people you connect with * Collage a home video of your happiest memories * Fill the cabinet full of things that you are curious about * Create footprints using photos of places you’ ve been

'Anybody who loved 'cutting and sticking' as a child will be thrilled with this book, which acts as a visual journal for you to add things that are meaningful to you, all through the medium of collage.  It's essentially a scrap book for adults, but a rather beautiful and creative one. The pages themselves are highly decorative as they are, and each has plenty of space for you to stick things that you'd like to 'collage and keep'. The page prompts vary from 'what path are you on?' to 'create your own tiny world', with plenty of inspiration in between.'

'Eleanor Shakespeare's innovative book encourages you to keep an interactive, visual diary that explores your personal experiences and ambitions through the medium of collage . . . A book to get you thinking as well as creating'
