The plateforme for our first book “Lia and the peas or What is Cancer?” is online and open to the public!
The first book under the “A story your way” project is ready. The story “Lia and the peas” is now completed and so are the beautiful illustrations by Adrienne Barman, Tom Tirabosco and Johan Walder. A few samples have been printed and they look great!
The online platform will be ready in September and will allow patients or any other interested person to customize a book in relation to their family situation. This interactive platform will enable printing-on-demand options…
Lacuna Loft is a site that offers ideas and resources for young adults with cancer or other chronic illnesses in order to ease the day to day. The underlying concept is that a cancer diagnosis is not an end of life diagnosis but rather the start of a different kind of life, and one that has to be lived up! Accepting new daily rythms along with access to methods, tools and options for easing the daily routine is necessary for both patient and entourage. A Story Your Way fits right in to the Lacuna Loft vision as we will offer a book adapted to the patient where their children recognise themselves and find comfort.
The father daughter duo at Read It Daddy have put up a review of Novacarta’s “A Story Your Way” project. With just 21 days left on our kickstarter campaign we are counting on the public at large to see the benefit this book will bring to cancer patients with young children. And as the editor of Read It Daddy says: “So many families would benefit from the book, and Novacarta obviously recognise the importance of ensuring that the deep customisation accurately reflects the modern family unit.”
Our kickstarter campaign was mentioned on the literary blog The Literay Atlas. This blog covers all kinds of literature from science fiction to fairy tales and reviews various books from all genres. The innovative and adaptable aspect of the “A Story Your Way” project was appreciated by the editor of the blog!
