All the books

Among 405 entries received in 18 participating countries, the international Typhlo & Tactus (T&T) jury analyzed 67 entries for 2 days 1/2.
The discovery and reading of each entry demonstrate a work of reflection, originality and great creativity. This year new subjects were treated like feelings, emotions, and jobs. Many entries evoke ecology with the seabed. Some authors also explored concepts such as light, paintings by painters … Furthermore we are also seeing new formats: larger books and more play-books. All these entries introduce either new materials or original techniques and interesting tactile surprises.

“This is a very aesthetic and relevant book in its representation of forms.

  • It stands out from the crowd in its treatment of the image. It gives the child other ways of reading tactile images and drawings.
  • The text is charming.
  • It is a finished and durable book that is very pleasant to touch.
  • The book seems very interesting for a beginner reader, the text and the pictures match
  • It does not weigh much, so it is easy to handle and certainly easy to edit.
  • The colors are readable even for the visually impaired and the subject matter can help in learning to draw.
  • It is a simple poetic book with a fluidity of touch and exploration.
  • This book is out of the ordinary, it is original. It can allow the teacher to begin to help with the understanding of drawing.
  • These lines show the child the power of lines and they allow children to build other lines.
  • It stimulates the child’s imagination and helps them to be creative and imaginative.
  • The simplicity of the reading remains amusing and the treatment of the drawing prominent. The story is well balanced.

Points for improvement:

  • The book is a bit short and may lead to boredom or lack of interest on the part of the child, perhaps because of a lack of surprises. The colors blue and red are not always appropriate, it is a vocabulary for the eyes.
  • There is little diversity of material and the lines are perhaps a little too prominent.
  • It is not the criteria of a usual tactile book.
