The act of experiencing a picture book is a thinly veiled, but nonetheless awesome,
incredibly exciting and rewarding way to encourage early literacy in young children...for a child who can see, that is. To a Blind or Vision Impaired child, a mainstream printed, bound picture book is pretty useless. It's a rectangle with flappy bits inside. A Librarian in Western Australia came up with an idea to make picture books multi-sensory, interactive and still fully share-able by 3D printing tactile illustrations, which has been adopted as a project at her Library. This is the journey.
