Moon Letters


Interesting take on script for the blind, the Moon letters. Now here is something that I think is very beautiful. And it is being made for the blind... strange.

As bibliophiles, how often do we stop to consider the ways sightless people experience books and reading? Prior to the mid-nineteenth century few options existed for the blind; several systems of raised lettering had been developed, but they were complicated and difficult to learn. Meanwhile, the growth of literacy and the media during the industrial revolution led to an increased demand for texts of all types, including those accessible to the blind.
