New Dual Format Books

A range of new Dual Format Books is available from Access2books, a non-for-profit project which is publishing popular children's books in giant print with braille and illustrations. The design of the books enables children and adults to read together, forming both educational and social relationships - the biggest contributing factor to children's early years' learning of language, confidence and social interaction.


The book format and design is: 12" x 12", 75 point print with braille on the left hand page and illustrations with braille description below on the right hand page. The font is Tiresias bold black, the production is in full colour, the binding is side stitched, and the cover is 330gsm card laminated in matt finish. 


For a list of titles and to view a sample of 'The Gruffalo' and 'Little Princess - I don't Want To Go To Bed', visit the Access2Books website at www.access2books.org or contact Eileen Finch on
