BlindArt Creative Tactile Books for Blind Preschoolers

Chasing the sock thief cover art

This project from BlindArt just launched on Kickstarter! They are looking for supporters to help them develop a series of four tactile picture books for preschool children which follow the adventures of two main characters, a keyboard enter key and a yellow sock who is searching for her missing twin sister.

The stories have been written by blind writers and illustrated by blind children using a special technique to create tactile and touchable pictures.

BlindArt plans to produce the books in both print and braille and each book will be 14 pages. If they reach their fundraising goals, they also plan to create interactive games (including a cool app) to add to the development of the story!
