"Collage This Journal" by Eleanor Shakespeare

Most journals focus on writing, and that's great.  However, this journal focuses on imagery.  Each page has a specific question or prompt.  Readers are encouraged to either draw or paste in a picture of what they are feeling.  There is a section in the front of the book that gives advice on how to handle family documents.  For example, make copies and paste those into the book--don't cut and paste original family photos.  The whole book is in color and has a nostalgic feel about it.  Readers will document their family, their dreams, what they love, what they need to get rid of, and more.  This is a visual way to express oneself.
