Books from Blocks

I love the idea of this "Livre en cavale" (Book on the run) game / installation designed by Natali Fortier for the Salon du Livre, St Priest. What a brilliant way for kids to discover the magic of fairytales! Natali created 12 wooden blocks with images from The Little Red Riding Hood, Thumbelina and her own work Mathurin and left her "book" for children to explore, push, turn, sit on, rearrange, talk to... making literature a physical, tactile and spatial experience. Bravo! - a wonderful way to invent story after story, stimulate a child's imagination and have some fun!


  1. This is a great idea, the blocks are beautiful.

  2. I love these, Deb!

  3. vraiment une jolie idée : j'aime l'idée d'une autre dimension de lecture. Ces cubes seront ensuite parfaits en tabourets !

  4. c'est une super idée !
    merci pour ce partage.
