Exploring Tactile Erotica

lisajmurphytactilemindpage2+copy.jpg Photographer Lisa J. Murphy is working with a new kind of reading experience, creating and self-publishing a book of tactile erotica. As you can see from the image above, her book includes textured and sexual illustrations.

Here’s more from the site: “She has photographed, sculpted, thermoformed, & self-published a book of nude photographs for the blind. Pictures and grade-one Braille accompany the images, so blind, vision impaired and sighted individuals can enjoy this work. [It is] handmade thermoform book consisting of 17, 2-D tactile photographs on white thermoform plastic pages with the visual image and descriptive Braille accompaniment.”

At The Star, the artist described how she created these images, a fascinating experiment for readers and publishers. Thanks to Dear Author for the link.
