The Black Book of Colours

It can be difficult to imagine what visual impairment might be like, but this book makes the challenge more attainable. Through a full Braille and written text, this book is accessible for a broad array of readers. It describes colours through the use of the other senses of touch, sound, taste and smell. The illustrations are also raised allowing every reader to explore the entire book through their fingers.

This book is an amazing piece of literature. Its accessible nature is not only great to include all readers, but also to teach students an alternative perspective and allow the world to be explored in a new way. It is truly a quality piece of literature.
