Braille Map

Braille map page  Braille map side view Braille map title page Typically when we think of items being created in Braille, our thoughts go first to textual books. This is an example of a Braille map made of the Alfred university campus. There are no printed letters other than a label on the front cover: “A Raised Map of Alfred University Campus, 1972. Prepared by Recording for the Blind, Inc., Princeton Unit, Princeton, N.J.” There’s no indication or background available as to why the map was created, but it certainly is an interesting artifact and was hopefully of use to someone with visual difficulties.
