We are beyond excited to tell you that since last December an amazing group of local designers has joined the Pechiches Team. They have been working really hard in creating the image of the book collection and in this report, for the first time, you'll get to see some of the illustrations of the books!!
The local designer team is: Luis Barvalópez, Alexandra Tello, Jorge Enrique Sierra, Karen Gómez, Omar Pineda, Helene Pineda. We coldn't have found better partners for this stage.
This is what they told us when they were invited to the project:
"We are excited about the project cause it has everything we love: working with communities and kids, recognition of their culture, and the use of illustrations to achieve it".
"Pechiches de Papel has the ideal mix of elements to make you excited about working on it. We understand the value of culture recognition within a community and its kids, and we are convinced that with the use of an illustrated book it can be done".
Help us spread the word about this beautiful project, the heaviest financial part of the project is just around the corner: "printing the books". Our goal is to print 1,000 copies to put one in every library of Cartagena and in the communities around. We are going to need all the help we can get!
