A world of proposals tailored to adults and children’s hands, to experience contact with nature and free time by experimenting, building, self-producing!
This is the concept at the heart of Terre di mezzo Editore craft books: books that speak about us because we are the ones who make what we read concrete. A few examples?
Create Your Own Cartoon
AUTHORS Nadia Abate, Danilo Cinciripini, Paola Paradisi
From the pre-film era to the most imaginative animation techniques, this practical handbook explores the many faces of the “moving story”. Transforming the idea into a storyboard and giving life to characters with stop-motion, pixilation, the flipbook, cut-outs, clay, sand, or the classic technique of animation.
The projects can then be filmed with a smartphone to become an actual cartoon.

AUTHORS Elena Valdré, Giulia Volontè
