The Black Book of Colours, Hardback
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


It can be hard for a sighted person to imagine what it is like to be blind.

But in this breathtaking, ground-breaking and award-winning colour book, Menena Cottin and Rosana Faria try to convey the experience of a person who can see only through their sense of touch, taste, smell or hearing.

With gorgeous textured art on black paper, accompanied by a beautifully written text translated into braille, this powerful book breaks down barriers and gives young readers the ability to experience the world in a whole new way.

Review by

A creative book that startles the reader into exploring their senses, the links between words and images as well as the world around them. Rather than a book that might help blind people see, after reading this text the sighted reader is left seeing as if for the first time. A refreshing and warm exploration of our world.
