Create Your Own London 2012 Book of Sports
Do you know any young braille readers who might enjoy a book about the
Olympic and Paralympic Games?
Mandeville’s Book of Sports is a specially designed book to introduce young
braille readers to the nine Paralympic sports open to blind athletes: Athletics,
Cycling, Equestrian, Football Five-a-Side, Goalball, Judo, Rowing, Sailing and
Swimming. There is a short braille text and a tactile illustration for each sport,
based on the official pictograms.
The book was designed by the ClearVision children’s braille library with help from
the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
ClearVision has been authorised to share the digital files for this book with
schools, libraries and associations for blind people all over the world. Any copies
you make should be given away or lent out to braille readers; they must not be
sold. Contact ClearVision: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to make
copies of this book, free of charge, using your own embosser or swell paper fuser.
