A book 3D-printed from standard A4 printer paper to allow blind and visually impaired people to experience it beyond Braille.
I was faced with the challenge to design a small edition of books in Braille that offer a tactile experience for visually impaired people.
The covers were 3D-printed with a new process that builds CAD models by layering sheets of A4 copy paper. Using this process in book design opens up lots of new possibilities for the often neglected area of Braille books.
The resulting sheets can be used in book binding like normal cardboard. The use of standard paper makes this process unbeatably cost effective and also fast.
