It is the first time that such an ambitious project has been undertaken in the Netherlands; for my part also a new undertaking. Apart from the actual designing I managed the production and developed a workflow which will hopefully help to pave the way for more tactile books being designed and produced here in the future. To realize this project I worked closely with the Visio School in Rotterdam. The project was managed by Dedicon and supported by the Novum Foundation.
It’s a great honour to be rewarded with a Typhlo & Tactus prize. There were 61 entries from 18 countries.
The aim of Typhlo & Tactus: more tactile illustrated books, better in quality, more tactually efficient, for all visually impaired children.
