The Rule and the Game: a sensory reading lab

To read is to look: to move between word and image, to navigate page to page. But a reader can also touch, listen, feel, ‘put on’ 3D glasses, scroll and be invited to try completely unexpected things. The authors of the children’s books in this exhibition wield more than just words, pictures and pages. They explore different materials and textures. Cut paper. Create volumes. Work with ink and transparencies. Add accessories. Unhinge. Move beyond the traditional order of pages. Set in motion. Leaf through a story on a very personal and sometimes experimental level – to expand a book’s possibilities.

They set new rules for the reader which involve senses other than sight. Rules that let the reader play, take action, feel a story and dive into it.

The Rule and the Game is an exhibition designed for the Transbook European project and was inaugurated at the Montreuil Children’s Book Fair (France) from November 30 to December 5, 2016.

The exhibition was presented from April 4 to 22 2017 at the Bologna International Book Fair at the Salaborsa Library and from May 18 to 22, 2017 at the International Book Fair in Turin, Italy.
The exhibition will travel from October 5 to November 26, 2017 at the Kasárne / Kulturpark Cultural Center in Kosice (Slovakia).
