The Rule and the Game: a sensory reading lab

May 28 / 10:00 am - June 1 / 5:00 pm

To read is to look, moving between word and image and navigating page to page. A reader can also touch, listen, feel and scroll. Selected children’s book authors and illustrators take visitors on a sensory adventure through different layers and ways of reading in this exhibition that challenges to experience books in  new and unexpected ways.

The exhibition was created by the Transbook European project and brought to London by ELCAF.

The exhibition is free with Daypass to Discover. For more information visit the Discover Children’s Centre website.
