Pornography is big business. No matter where you look, it seems you don’t have to go far to be bombarded with pornographic images. It is so common these days, that what used to make me blush, doesn’t even get me to bat an eyelash anymore. I’m just used to it, but what if I was blind? How would I be able to cruise porn… I mean, um, be accidentally exposed to porn, if I couldn’t see?
Lisa Murphy knew just what to do, she sculpted, thermoformed and self-published a handmade book of nude photographs that can be used? by the visually impaired. Complete with racy pictures, as raised images, allowing the user to “feel” the picture. Tactile Minds also contains the descriptive braille accompaniment to each of the seventeen 3D images.
You may not know that Playboy published braille issues for a few years, but it didn’t have any pictures. Isn’t that sort of like a fantastic bottle of wine with no corkscrew?
Anyway, Each book is numbered and signed by Lisa J. Murphy. Single pages from the book are also available for individual sale.
