PLEASE TOUCH! There is a haptic and kinesthetic joy to opening and touching this book that is both intentional and serendipitous. This miniature book was created for my Capstone exhibit at the Corcoran School of Art + Design in Washington, DC and will be on display from April 28th until May 11th. The Asheville Bookwork's show titled "Homegrown Alphabet" was the inspiration for this piece. This Alphabet was designed for the blind and its purpose is to give them a tactile understanding of "homegrown" fonts. This book is meant to be "viewed" from the debossed side and is intended to be backlit for ease of viewing when on display. The ink on the reverse side is intended to aid in viewing only.
