Tactile Graphics

This term refers to those graphical representations that have been specially prepared for use by touch. Historically, such graphics were prepared with a wide range of tools and supplies – sewing tracing wheel, awls, string, and puffy paint, among many others. More recently with the advent of computer technology and sophisticated embossers, many graphics are being built through use of software and produced with embossers or specially constructed paper that reacts to heat.
