Using a thermoform plastic, they raise each image and use Braille to describe what it shows. It is to be sold for £150.
Now it's one thing to be diverse, but a picture book for the blind? I guess everyone has the right to read and appreciate images, but I would have thought landscapes and artistic masterpieces may have been recreated instead.
After all, it could have been looking at the featured images that caused them to go blind in the first place...

I think they're only £3 from a machine... oh wait, they're the sheep... :p
Knowing some people, £150 is enough to hire a real person I am sure!

As Butch pointed out, it really isn't that difficult for someone who's blind to use a computer and/or the internet.
I agree that £150 is a bit on the expensive side, couldn't you buy a 'Blow Up Betty' for about £20?
> £150 !?!?,would be expecting to feel more than a book !
It is a bit of a rip-off.
@Chris - I think they may need to upgrade to a guide-monkey!
