Come and enjoy our wonderful little tactile reading room.
Welcoming you are some exceptionally beautiful tactile illustrated books and a delightful giant poster, all to be touched and enjoyed. They were born in a French workshop for blind and visually impaired children.
Please stay here as long as you like to enjoy caressing them gently, with both hands and all five senses.
You may find yourself wanting to speak with somebody after this experience, without knowing why.
These amusing tactile books are just like your friends:
Always beside you, they get on with anybody, anywhere, and anytime.
With them, we will all be taken on an adventure to explore somewhere new.

Les Doigts Qui Rêvent (Dreaming fingers) is a workshop that creates tactile illustrated books for blind and visually impaired children. Established as a non-profitable organazation in Talant, Burgundy (France) in 1993, all their tactile books are made by hand one by one. Many people, such as creators, industry professionals, community workshops and volunteers, are involved in its cooperative creation process from ideas to realizations. Delightfully beautiful illustrated books are born every day in this place to be caressed by those who need them. Their tactile illustrated books are on sale at the official bilingual website (English / French):
