[bksvol-discuss] Re: Artists' Biographies

Unfortunately, tactile drawings really don't help with this kind of art. I would just say the name of the painting by artist name is shown on this page. I assume there is lots of biographical material etc in the book that a blind person could benefit from.

I had the whole set when my kids were young though I enjoyed the books more than they did, I'm afraid. They're a wonderful reference, but I imagine they're very difficult to scan and proof--and I don't know that the paintings are easily describable. The best thing would be for a company to publish them in such a way that the shapes and colors of the paintings can be made tactile

hi everyone,

I am wondering, if it would be worth continuing with the
Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists? series.

We have Da Vinchi, Van Goe and Momet in the collection at
present and just submitted Raphael and Piccaso, I have Mark
Chagall to submit as well.  But wondering if there is
interest for these books, should I continue to do them?

It is an entire series, I can google the entire list.

Reading a book is like rewriting it for yourself. You bring
to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the
world. You bring your history and you read it in your own
terms. -Angela Carter, novelist and journalist (1940-1992)
