What people are saying
Thank goodness there are people out there making books as informative and well designed as Sam Barclay’s latest publication that he has created about dyslexia.
Letters morph into shapes which meander, swap places and play tricks on the eye. Frustrating yet fascinating, the book reveals a space between words and meaning where new interpretations of language are possible.
Beautifully designed and fit for both coffee tables and classrooms, the book helps those who aren’t dyslexic understand what it’s like to struggle with reading on a daily basis.
