This year we continue celebrating with you the World Book and Copyright Day, a date to promote the love for reading and respect for the creations of our writers, illustrators and translators, all over the world.

23 April is a symbolic date for world literature for around this date in 1616, Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died. It is also the date of birth or death of other prominent authors such as Maurice Druon, K.Laxness, Vladimir Nabokov, Josep Pla and Manuel Mejía Vallejo.

It is a date to encourage everyone, and in particular children and young people, to discover the pleasure of reading and gain a renewed respect for the irreplaceable contributions of those who have contributed to the social and cultural progress of humanity.

This year we celebrate it especially in Bangkok, capital of Thailand that has been chosen by UNESCO and other organizations in the publishing industry for the World Book Capital in 2013. Throughout this year Bangkok is implementing in the community several projects to promote reading, aimed primarily at young people and the public most disadvantaged. This global distinctionwas launched by UNESCO in 1996 and the first capital of the world that held the titlewas Madrid, Spain, in 2001.

TaCarta celebrates this event with their letters for children, translated into several languages, and that promote reading in a fun way through the letter box, as a means of exploring new formats closest to the reader.

TaCarta continues to publish for you.

Excitement is back in your letter box!
