Norway: Norwegian Association of the Blind and Partially Sighted Printshop, 2012. Strand, Randi Annie. Square quarto. (20)ff. One of thirty-five copies, signed by the artist, Randi Annie Strand. Illustrated with blind-embossed images of maps so that the reader encounters a variety of landscapes exclusively through plays of light and the sensitivity of their own fingers. Without color and images, the book renders the experience of reading and traveling to become purely tactile, thereby putting that experience of those with visual impairments on par with the fully sighted. The illustrations accompany the text in Braille. Names of places have the same sensuality as their images, and the volume concludes with an excerpt from “On Exactitude in Science” by Borges, himself visually impaired later in life. The book thus becomes a champion of accessibility for the blind, advocating for the elevation of language beyond the visual. Much of Strand’s artwork focuses on the same, seeking to bridge the supposed divisions between the senses to instead offer alternate ways of experiencing the world. Spiral bound by the artist, set into a cover of cloth over boards. Fine. Item #30199
