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.

Herr Wunderlich, der wundert sich (Mister Wonderlich is wondering) - Almut Bürger - Germany

“Thank you for a very good story. We enjoyed it very much. Especially some of your illustrations. A toilet, a window with spiders, a suitcase they are so funny. You used very suitable and pleasant material, hedgehog, a shoe, an elephant… That’s a pity that a lot of illustrations are only visual not tactile. And there is a problem with layers of some illustrations (for example a first shoe). It couldn’t be below the level, but it could raise braille is too low, it could be more readable by fingers. We like the final joke with different size of shoes !” Czech jury

Tactile exploration: the materials make peach skin the simple forms in mutation, the systems the displacements gives much coherence to the subject of the book. A connection between inverted commas moving with the book a lot of softness a bit like a caress a fluid exploration Manuel.” The French jury
