Inclusive children´s book for Hispanic Markets – Support us!

Colecao_adelia-e1493230694895

Adelia Cook, one of three books of the Adelia Collection – Help little Adelia reach all the kids around the world!

I am launching a project in  Catarse ( brazilian crowdfunding site) about an inclusive children’s book developed with an innovative Braille print created by author and graphic designer Wanda Gomes from Brazil. This Braille print developed by her is unique in the world and brings a whole new experience for children with visual impairment or not; it allows textures, reliefs and even scents to be printed!
 The collection is called Adélia and is already in Portuguese with 9 thousand copies distributed.
The funding is to print 500 copies in Spanish for dissemination in Book Fairs in México, Argentina  and Colombia with the Spanish publishers who have already requested the collection and also the american hispanic market.
 A very important project for the education and inclusion of children with visual impairment.
The project also seeks investors to cover or exceed the total value for a larger print run and distribution.
