Celestial objects as they appear through visible-light telescopes and in different spectral regions that are invisible to the naked eye. The posters use a combination of Braille and large-format traditional text, and a variety of tactile textures and symbols.
From Earth to the Solar System (FETTSS) FETTSS is a collection of images that showcase the excitement of planetary exploration. A tactile and Braille all-weather poster series mounted on still styrene provides additional connections with the FETTSS materials. There are 8 images for this series.
Here, There & Everywhere (HTE)
A tactile and Braille poster series mounted on still styrene helps to provide connections with HTE materials. The topics covered in the HTE Braille/tactile poster series include eruptions, shadows, wind, erosion, outflows, seeding and spirals.
Audio files of the text from the Braille panels are also provided to accompany the poster sets. Request a copy of any of these poster sets from Kim Arcand (email@example.com)
