What Color is the Wind children's book by Author Anne Herbauts
A blind child questions all he encounters--a dog, wolf, elephant, mountain, bird, stream, and tree--about the color of the wind. Each responds differently, with a shape, color, smell, texture, or idea. Each page displays a visual and tactile palette of cutouts, textures, colors. It is a sensory experience that makes the invisible experiential, ending with the wind as the pages fly.
About the Author
Born in 1976 and a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, Anne Herbauts expresses an original world in each of her books. Awake to the richness of the world, endlessly curious, and rigorous in her work, Anne has written and illustrated over 20 books for children, illustrated 5 others, and has published 5 comic books for an older audience. Describing her work she says, "I am in the words and the images at the same time. The realm in which I work is the space between the two." Written in French, her books have been translated into many languages.
