Touch to See Book Club titles
Our Touch to See Book Club titles have been specially designed for a group of blind and partially sighted people to share and explore together.
Each Touch to See Book Club resource contains:
- 2 or 3 tactile pictures (we include 10 copies of each, or let us know how many are in your group).
- Atmospheric audio guides that both discuss and describe the tactile pictures.
- A4 colour pictures to accompany each image.
- Useful guidance notes for the group leader, which includes suggestions for discussions, hands-on activities, music listening, poetry and literature.
There is a wide and growing range of titles to choose from including ‘What’s Cooking?’, ‘Flying Fishermen’, ‘Fabulous Frocks’, ‘Eternal Love’, ‘Dickensian Hard Times’ and many more, such as:
Shakespeare’s Kings and Heroines: First enjoy finding out about the bard himself – we all know his name but what do we really know about the man? Then enjoy dipping into two of his plays. Join Sir Derek Jacobi as he talks about Richard II. Then linger by the water’s edge to study Ophelia, a beautiful Pre-Raphaelite painting depicting the sad heroine in Hamlet.
