Organisation details

Description

Living Paintings’ charity brings pictures to life for blind and partially sighted people. We provide a free, nationwide, postal library of unique Touch to See books for of all ages from pre-school through childhood and teen years to older adults. Our books contain tactile images with audio soundtracks which tell the pictures’ stories while directing the fingertips across the raised images. They describe what is being touched and ‘seen’ and are designed to be shared with sighted friends, family and classmates.

Adults explore subjects such as British wildlife, English gardens and the history of art. Children have fun and learn with a range of tactile versions of well know illustrated childrens’ books & on-curriculum resources for teachers. They can enjoy special topical books for young people of all ages covering a broad selection of subjects that interest them. There are 1,000’s of titles available and joining the Library is easy. 9,500 people & 500 schools already benefit.
