Sam Barclay, a Kickstarter user from the United Kingdom, designed a book that illustrates what it's like to be dyslexic, have a lack of education or have English as a second or third language.
The struggle to read is a daily thing and the author intended this book to help show how it feels. As outlined in the Kickstarter user's introduction, "People with reading difficulty are often capable of thinking in ways that others aren't and as a result are capable of true greatness, yet these people are often misunderstood and treated unfairly as a result."
The hope is that the book will provide readers with a beautiful, designed experience that also shows what it's like to be dyslexic or struggle with reading. The book is meant to be a coffee table accessory that would encourage whoever picks it up to take a different outlook on reading.
