Read-along Braille stamps
To mark the 200th birthday of Louis Braille, the inventor of a reading and writing system for blind and visually impaired people, TNT Post issued a series of special stamps. An exciting word game with both printed letters and Braille characters that can be read by sighted and blind people. The minimalist use of colour and the tactile Braille dots introduce the sighted to the world of the blind.
