Please note that you are required to book your tickets prior to your visit. Thank you for your understanding.

An augmented book is not one in which the number of pages has been increased. The authors of these books have just found many different ways of bringing their stories to life! With the help of their readers, the words and characters on the paper break free to enter new worlds, some virtual and some real.

In the AB 2.0 exhibition, all that is needed is a well-placed fold, the trace of a coloured pencil, or the slide of a finger on a tablet for the stories to yield endless possibilities. Through interactive installations and workshops, visitors will be able to (re)discover how versatile books can be, as well as some fun and surprising approaches to reading.

« L’exposition AB met à l’honneur les livres jeunesse qui lient réel et virtuel, techniques d’hier et d’aujourd’hui, jeux d’optique et réalité augmentée. (…) Cette expo aux multiples ramifications ravit petits et grands, souvent bluffés. Livres animés, papiers découpés, pages en relief, images cachées, mondes invisibles incitent à s’évader au pays de l’enfance et nous emportent dans de nouvelles narrations où ludisme, onirisme, magie et poésie sont au rendez-vous. »
