The basic requirements for tactile books are related to the age of the children, their disability, their development level and their relevant experience.
In tactile books for the early years it is important to strictly follow certain rules; as the child grows and his or her experience increases it is more permissible to ‘break the rules’ in some circumstances.

Features of the book :
- it must be robust;
- it must have stiff pages (cardboard or fabric) with rounded corners;
- it must have a binding that allows it to open out flat for tactile exploration of each page and to close properly afterwards
- the text must be in both large print (eg 24pt Ariel) and braille
- the text should always be on the same side of the book (ie left or right hand page) and so should the illustrations;
- the dimensions of the pages vary according to the age of the child; a child could start with a book 15 x 15 cms and progress (20 x 20, 25 x 25, 21 x 29.7) as the child grows and his/her exploratory skills develop.
- the number of pages is also related to age; you can start with just a few pages (5 – 6), and gradually increase the number;
- mark the bottom of each page to help the child with the orientation of the book.
- make sure that the details can be easily identifiable;
- leave plenty of space between different items on the page;
- avoid occlusion (items which pass in front of other items and partially hide them);
- respect proportions and avoid the effects of perspective;
- human shapes are best represented from the front, while animal shapes are best shown sideways (with four legs);
- if a character appears more than once in the story, it should keep the same characteristics;
- the thickness of materials glued to the page should be at least 1 mm.

Braille Neue
Currently, we rarely see braille implemented in the public space since
it takes additional space andsighted people consider it not important.
Braille Neue addresses this issue by making braille easy to use for sighted people.
Braille Neue is a universal typeface that combines braille with existing characters.
This typeface communicates to both the sighted and blind people in the same space.

5-2 Off Suit
The second Nonary Game is over, leaving its survivors hungry, tired, and stranded in Nevada. A road trip isn't what any of them want, but the only way out is forward and the only way forward is across a long, long stretch of desert.

(Alternately: Junpei and Snake share a hotel room, buy terrible clothing, and work out some feelings.)

spring cleaning for skeletons
There comes a point in every budding relationship where two enamored young lovers find themselves running out of things to talk about with one another. In the beginning, varied conversation flowed freely, almost too quickly to keep track of, a sign of the chemistry between them. But the number of shared interests between two people is always finite. Eventually the words die out, and, unfortunately, so does the excitement.

For Aoi and Light, whose only common ground was shared traumatic memories, this point occurred about eleven hours after their first kiss.

pulse and breath
I tried to post something on Valentine's Day and the servers didn't let me.

a... /second/ epilogue to Emergency Light?

[Part 3 of the ‘self-indulgent aoilight within’ series; sequel to ‘Emergency Light’; sequels: ‘spring cleaning for skeletons’ and ‘Epilogue (Emergency Light)’]
“Could I have your hand for a moment?” he asked, holding out his own.

Holding his shaking breath, Aoi stared at Light’s face, trying to discern his intention. He had to break the gaze to accurately place his hand in Light’s palm. His whole arm tensed up when Light traced the shape of his hand to determine whether it was left or right by the location of the thumb. He lifted Aoi’s right hand to the left side of his neck, pressing Aoi’s fingers under his chin.

A pulse throbbed—and sooner than it should have, it throbbed again. More than twice a second, it beat with fast blood.

“I am aware that I come across as an irritatingly confident prick,” he said with a small laugh, a /nervous/ laugh. “I promise it’s entirely an act I’m not very good at dropping. But here’s a glimpse behind the curtain, as the saying goes.”

The pulse was slowing, but it still had not fallen to a true resting rate. Light’s lips were quivering in his smile.

“So then,” he said, “does that put us on equal footing?”

:::::☆ ☆:::::

“I’ve known you for only a few short bursts over a long span of time,” Light said. “You’ve changed, of course, but at your core, you’re the same person I’ve admired all this time. I’ve always liked the way you manage to be both an extreme pessimist and a steadfast optimist at the same time. You see the worst in everything, yet you’re always determined to persevere. Even when things are entirely hopeless, you believe your own wits will get you through.”

Emergency Light
In the continuing adventures of SOIS and Crash Keys, Aoi Kurashiki finds himself partnered with Light Field as they stand by to receive while their sisters infiltrate a mysterious facility. When Clover transmits a distress signal, the boys find themselves literally and metaphorically traveling into deep, dark trouble.

For Snake and Santa's days of 999 week, although this takes place well after the events of ZTD.
