Celebrating 125 years of the Scottish Braille Press

Scottish Braille Press logo

An exhibition, which describes the development of Braille and celebrates 125 years of The Scottish Braille Press, will launch next month at Central Library, Edinburgh.

Our story begins in France, and a chance meeting on the streets of Paris in 1874 provides Valentine Hauy the inspiration to devise a tactile system of printing embossed books for blind and partially sighted people.
