The Black Book of Colours

by Menena Cottin, illustrated by Rosana Faria
£11.99   hardback  Walker Books Ltd (2010)

The Black Book of Colours by Menena Cottin, illustrated by Rosana Faria A stunning and unforgettable black book ... about colour.
 
Our eyes tell us about colour. But what if you are blind? Can you still know colours? Using simple language and beautiful textured art, this book shows you how to “see” without your eyes.
 
The pages are black, but using your imagination and your senses you can hear, smell, touch and taste colours! Red is sour like unripe strawberries and sweet as watermelon. Yellow tastes like mustard, but is as soft as a baby chick’s feathers. Blue is the colour of the sky when kites are flying. From out of the blackness, a beautiful rainbow of colours emerges!
