Watch Stories As They Get Illustrated
Una mà de contes is an online archive of an illustrated children’s television program from Catalan television.
Joan M. Mas writes: The title is a wordplay sounding just like ‘mar de contes’ (a sea of tales; in catalan this expression ‘a sea of…’ means a lot of something), while the real title of the show, Mà de contes is ‘a hand of tales’ for the reason explained here: In each episode a children’s tale is narrated while on screen it is painted, drawn, modelled or collaged by different illustrators or artists. A feast for illustration lovers. The archive is organized by technique, title, artist… and you can see the whole episodes. If you feel like playing, there is even a story builder with texts and images.While the site is not in English, you can easily turn on English audio and/or subtitles for each tale. Fun!
