A few days ago I came across ‘Shade 7’. When I looked into it what I saw was not only interesting but MIND BLOWING WORK. I wanted to read more about who actually is the mastermind behind this beauty but you know I just got busy into another thing and had to leave it for some other time.
But, something unexpected happened . I came across one amazing young lady in the evening, who worked right under the nose of shade 7 and sent me their book’s press release.
I couldn’t believe it. She was the one I had been talking to all this while. Shade 7 was a girl.
Hajera Memon, A young Muslim female entrepreneur, who quit a high flying legal career in the City for the world of Islamic children’s books, in order to publish her first title just a year after putting pen to paper was the amazing girl talking to me from day 1. She is 29, from Dollis Hill in London, began developing the book – a pop-up version of the famous Story of The Elephant – in her bedroom, in December 2012, after setting up her own publishing company, Shade 7. She is now working with designers, translators, business mentors and a specialist publisher as the final delivery date edges closer.
I immediately asked her to send me some of the material that I could use to blog about this excellent project.
I recommend you all check out this awesome project and pre-order it for your kids or any child you love, to gift it to. Here’s the link. http://igg.me/at/popup-book
