“Ecosystems València” is an illustrated children’s book with all the magic of a “Wimmelbook” and it invites us to look beyond the walls of the city and explore the surrounding nature.

¿But what does a “Wimmelbook” mean?

A Wimmelbook is a type of illustration book of German origin with a great tradition in this country but still very little known in Spain. It is a children’s book of plasticised cardboard (600gr) showing different parts of the city while accompanying some characters that appear on each page. There are no predetermined narratives or stories, which enables an open, original and multilingual reading while the kids are having fun to explore and recognise the different parts of their city.

Here are our protagonists! They all live in València and although they don't know each other yet, they are part of the city and the city landscapes – each one in their own specific way. What are you doing today? Will they meet anyone new today? Accompany them on their walks as they discover the secrets and treasures of their surroundings.

And what makes our “Wimmelbook” different and special?

As soon as we started to work on the contents of the book we realised that for us València was much more than emblematic buildings and squares. In fact, our favourite places are often located behind the city walls in the surrounding nature. That is why we decided to broaden our perspective and represent not only the city as such (Old Town) but also the different surrounding ecosystems which in some way nourish the city itself: the vegetable garden (la huerta), the port area (La Marina), the natural park of the Albufera or the old river bed, now transformed into a park that crosses the entire city.

A book for children and adults alike

We are carrying out an entire participatory research process. This means we are getting in touch with key actors in each place to identify elements that have to do with the essence of each of the places selected (flora and fauna, historical, ecological, social or cultural elements) that inn our opinion can further enrich the different readings of the book, making it not only a book for children but also an interesting work for both educational and for tourism purposes.

paseos, fotos, entrevistas, folletos, anotaciones en el cuaderno, exposiciones... Todo un cúmulo de experiencias que dan vida a las imágenes

Our main objective is to depict situations or elements through drawings that capture our attention and raise awareness of cultural, ecological, historical or environmental aspects, depending on how the book is used and read.

Creative process

Are you among those people who like to know what’s going on behind the scenes?

We consider this book a collaborative project. That is why, apart from the associations and people who advise us, from now on you will also be able to be part of “Ecosystems València” in a very special way :)

About the rewards

We have created many special rewards so that every donor gets the one he or she likes the most. As you already know, some of them are objects or experiences that you can only get during the campaign so if you like the project, don't hesitate to support us.

We offer a wide range of gadgets and extras: colouring sheets for the little ones, tablesets to make your meals more fun, travel notebooks for the explorers among you, puzzles, large posters, and even the possibility to find your alter ego drawn in the book!

Who we are

We are Doro and Anneta and we have known each other for more than 13 years, but it was not until half a year ago that our paths crossed again to embark on some creative adventures together that we are very enthusiastic about. This project was born out of a dream that Doro had some months ago and which relates to her childhood and the wish as a mother of four girls to have a Wimmelbook of her current hometown of Valencia to be able to share special moments with her daughters and friends.

Queridos mecenas "ecosistémicos":
¡ENHORABUENA por esta VICTORIA COLECTIVA!

Gracias a vuestro apoyo no sólo vamos a conseguir que el libro "Ecosistemas València" sea una realidad sino que, además, va a tener una página extra tipo Wally donde aparecerán vuestros nombres ( o los de la persona que vosotros elijáis). Estamos super felices con la acogida fantástica que ha tenido el proyecto desde el inicio y no nos cansaremos de agradeceros que forméis parte de ello.

y... ¿qué mejor manera para celebrarlo que mostraros como ha quedado la imagen de otro ecosistema?

Os presentamos con mucha ilusión el PORT-MARINA de València

Una imagen, que como el resto, no representa un escena real actual sino un conglomerado de situaciones diversas y divertidas, momentos o elementos que en algún momento existieron o existen, dando el carácter a este emblemático espacio de la ciudad.

(més avall en valencià)/(English below)

Queridos mecenas, tenemos novedades:)

Os contamos. Ya hace unos días, al ver la calurosa acogida que tuvo el proyecto, nos pusimos a pensar y barajar posibilidades para proponer un nuevo objetivo. Como ya sabéis el libro lleva consigo todo un proceso de investigación donde, hablando con diferentes actores, vamos construyendo los personajes y paisajes que aparecen en las imágenes. Y la verdad es que estamos descubriendo cositas muy interesantes en ámbitos muy diferentes: histórico, cultural, ecológico, social,… que no sabemos hasta que punto son percibidas por el espectador (lector). Así que se nos ocurrió que si conseguimos suficiente dinero, podríamos hacer que el libro tenga un díptico más en el que, como en tantos otros “libros de búsqueda”, nombremos algunos de estos hallazgos añadiendo un plus más de diversión al proyecto ☺

#01 / ¡Objetivo conseguido!

Estamos emocionadas, felices y super contentas de anunciaros de que hemos llegado al objetivo y el proyecto del libro Ecosistemas València va a convertirse en un libro que todos/as vamos a poder tener muy pronto en nuestras manos para mirarlo, leerlo, jugar, aprender y todo lo que se nos ocurra. Y todo ha sido gracias a cada una de las personas que desde detrás de esta pantalla habéis apoyado y difundido nuestro proyecto!

¡Gracias! Mil gràcies! Thank you!

Ahora aún nos quedan algunos días de campaña y ya estamos pensando en un nuevo objetivo que si alcanzamos hará que todos los mecenas puedan beneficiarse de una mejora en el libro muy especial.
!Estar atento que os lo contamos muy pronto!

Un abrazo

Doro y Anneta
