Making of The Feast For The King

We have been working on an exciting project over the past couple of months - a tactile book for our publisher friends from Lemniscaat, Netherlands. Titled 'Feestmaal Voor De Koning' (The Feast for the King), this book tells the story of a chef - a tarantula - who goes around investigating all the animals in the kingdom regarding their king's missing birthday treat. We made tactile books out of this delightful story and sent them to Lemniscaat last week, and this would not have been possible without Rajendran and all these lovely ladies at V and M Prints.
