The Black Book of Colors by Menena Cottin

I stumbled across this while looking for a book for my cousin’s new baby. I was so intrigued by the whole idea. On each left page there was words written in braille and then again in white text. It was the description of colors, according to how a blind child would experience. On the right there were raised etchings of what each page was describing. It’s so beautiful.

One page in particular that really caught my attention was the one describing the color red. It talked about how red is how it feels to bite into a ripe strawberry, or the stinging on your knee after you fall down.  Blue was the feeling of sunshine on your face. 

It’s just so astounding that someone managed this, as the idea of how to describe a color to someone who has no reference has always fascinated and baffled me.

My new Book Bag/Purse, inspired by this rookie mag article.

I made it out of material from 2 pants-to-shorts alterations, a snap, this old encyclopedia and a whole lot of rubber cement. I then followed this tutorial’s tips and added some cardboard to the spine from the inside to make it more stable.

Why do I look like I want to eat it?
