Sean Bean has lent his voice and support to a project by Kingsclere charity Living Paintings. The Lord of the Rings actor recorded the story of Beowulf for Living Paintings – a story which is included in the charity’s latest educational book currently in production, The Anglo Saxons.
The Touch to See book contains special versions of pictures with raised surfaces that come to life when fingers feel them.The audio descriptions direct the fingers, telling the stories of the pictures and describing their features, combining the senses of touch and hearing.
He said: “I really enjoyed working with Living Paintings and, as such a small charity providing a completely unique service, I hope that my support can help to make a difference by raising awareness so that even more visually-impaired people can learn about and join their free postal library.”
