I Speak is a carousel book. Each page has a set of hand folded and painted origami lips. At the beginning of the book, the lips are small. They gradually increase in size as the pages are turned, representing a voice that is becoming more confident and stronger.
The content can be read in three different ways. First, by reading only
the content written on the lips. Second, by reading the content on the
pages that is in red. And finally, by reading all of the content
(lips, red text and silver text) together.
