BOLOGNA RAGAZZI AWARD NEW HORIZONS EDICIONES TECOLOTE El libro negro de los colores text by Menena Cottin, illustrations by Rosana Faría The Jury of the BolognaRagazzi Award unanimously gave the prize to El libro negro de los colores by Menena Cottin and Rosana Faría, Ediciones Tecolote. The reasons were many and varied. First, the book is an outstanding teaching tool of great ethical value, a pure delight for all readers. The two authors have succeeded in poetically transforming the vibrancy of colour into limpid tactile sensations, communicating the complex nuances of the visual world to the unsighted. At the same time it is a visually,aesthetically successful book for the sighted. The restrained elegance of the artwork is the product of in-depth research and vast cultural knowledge. With this award, the Jury acknowledges the ability of El libro negro de los colores to bring together a very diverse readership and so break down old barriers.
