After visiting the San Juan Capistrano Mission and taking hundreds of photos, I got to thinking...what is it about this place that really gets me? I kept thinking about the archways, adobe walls, the gardens, the history, and even the fossil shells exposed in the old mission walls. However, while looking through the photos a few days later, I realized it what I really loved about the historic site. The light.
Light has a few meanings in this case, such as having the sunlight for agriculture, beautiful grounds, and even for "seeing the spiritual "light." From there, I wanted to include another definition of light for those would can't normally see it: the visually impaired.
The book is created to function as an informative book about the San Juan Capistrano Mission and the illustrations function only with the light an/or by touching them. The illustrations work as braille and also have captions below each picture to explain what they're feeling.
