Who does the DBSV tactile books?

Eva Cambeiro Andrade:
I was born in a small town in northern Spain. After my bachelor's degree at the University of Social Sciences and Communication in Pontevedra I completed a master's degree in audio description and subtitling at the University of Granada. In 2008/2009 I completed a European Voluntary Service (EVS) at the school for partially sighted children St. Michael in Waldkirch. After this experience, I worked for two years in Granada as a coordinator of EVS projects for blind and partially sighted young people.

In 2012 I joined the DBSV. There I discovered the EVEIL project, which promotes reading for partially sighted children. The topic attracted me immediately and since 2014 I co-ordinate the design and manufacturing of DBSV tactile and action books together with Reiner Delgado. I deal mainly with the design and creation of books, material acquisition and the coordination of volunteers, and am myself the author of the books: children's "Who kidnapped Bartolitus?".

What makes tactile books is so important and unique?
I grew up surrounded by books. The images introduced me to great things, places and people without that I had to remove myself from the chair. Tactile and action books enable blind and partially sighted children to explore the world with their tactile, olfactory or auditory sense and to let their imagination fly.

Reiner Delgado:
As a child I was severely visually impaired. Reading books or watching TV, I could not see much, but I didn't dare to tell anybody, and acted as if I could see everything. When I had small children myself, I was blind and now could again don't read any books with the children.

As a social referent at the DBSV I worked in the international EVEIL project and got to know the tactile and action books as they were designed at the school in Ilvesheim and by Susanne Sariyannis. These books have inspired me a lot. It makes a lot of fun to come up with ideas for tactile books that I develop with Eva Cambeiro Andrade. We have a lot more ideas than we can ever realize. And my kids loved seeing those books, too. So they are for the whole family.

What makes tactile books is so important and unique?
Tactile books are so important because they are much closer to the real world as audiobooks or e-books!
