All the books

Among 405 entries received in 18 participating countries, the international Typhlo & Tactus (T&T) jury analyzed 61 entries for 2 days.
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 cloth book is a small format, the pages open flat for a good discovery to the touch. The story is simple, on each page the child discovers a surprise. The materials are very different, the one used for the seaweed is close to reality. The colors of the cover are contrasted for visually impaired children. A great encouragement to the author to continue his creation of tactile books.” French Judge
