What would happen if the world lost its colors and everything would turn pale, grey and glommy?

Carmesina knows it because she is the character of a story where colors disappear when suddenly a black cat appear and change the course of events.

This is the first story in a series of fifteen tales about friendship, laughter, courage, nature, and love populated by characters both real and fantastical, but always unfailingly human, with whom the reader is sure to identify.

Forgotten Colors and Other Illustrated Storiestakes readers on a journey into fantasy and imagination in the form of fifteen tales that aim to awaken the child inside us. Although intended for adults, the stories are written and illustrated in a lively and vibrant style that is equally appropriate for youngsters and teens.

We aim to promote creativity and positive thinking while at the same time contributing, with part of the proceeds from the book’s sales, to the development NGO Educación Sin Fronteras, which promotes education.

This book was created from the imagination and pen of Silvia G. Guirado; and fantasy and the pencils of David García Forés, Desiree Arancibia and Marta García Pérez. With the special collaboration of Claudia Blin's brushes and the support of the Play Creatividad team.

Origin of the book

I could say that it all started with a word chosen at random or with something that happened to me one day, but the truth is that this book was conceived of in a far more unusual way.

Most of the stories were inspired by a collection of Play Attitude T-shirts. Each design was meant to be a reflection on what goes on in the world. Unfailingly positive, they embody a specific mindset and attitude. Initially, each story was to be no longer than eight lines and would be printed on bookmarks to be enclosed with each shirt. Ultimately, however, those succinct initial concepts had enough substance to be stretched into proper stories, and that’s how this experiment came to be. Each image gave rise to a thousand words, which, in turn, became these tales. We added a dash of reflection, imagination, fantasy, and, above all, poetry, and voilà. The designs came alive on the page, offering proof that words and images can coexist.
