By Anastasia Catris, Anastasia Catris
Authors:
Anastasia Catris
Illustrated by:
Anastasia Catris
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 dogs and wolves, 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.

  • Divine Intervention

    By David Bird, Terence Reese
    Authors:
    David Bird, Terence Reese
    'The monks are back. That's all you need to know if you have already been exposed to the wonderful series by Terence Reese and David Bird, featuring high-level bridge deals and high-level laughter, about the fanatical bridge-playing denizens of St Titus. Divine Intervention follows one of the earlier books by including an African interlude, but the high-spot in this book comes when a director tries to give a ruling in an unprecedented situation involving the silent Brother Anthony.' The Bridge World'Ensure that you start reading this book at a weekend, in the morning, because - like me - you may not be able to put it down until you have finished. The deals are interesting, the instruction is painless, the stories are amusing, and the characters are fascinating stereotypes, familiar personalities to every club player.' Bridge Plus

    Drawing The Human Body

    By Giovanni Civardi
    Authors:
    Giovanni Civardi
    Every artist longs to portray the human figure in all its expressiveness and sculptural beauty. To do so requires a well-balanced mix of science and creative vision, an understanding both of anatomy and each individual body¿s emotional eloquence. Overflowing with the sketches that capture a wondrous repertoire of angles and positions; pointers that, one by one, focus on all the details of the body; and close-ups that show emotion-packed expressions as well as precise musculature. Through his own expert illustrations, the author shows the male and female body from front, sideways and back, revealing typical proportions, and showing projections in frontal, lateral and dorsal, each part of the skeleton and each muscle. He comments on morphology of the head, neck shoulder and more; and offers a plethora of gestures and action positions.Every drawing is proof of how technique and imagination come together to create superb art.
