Shapereader is a tactile language, specifically designed to allow the creation of universally accessible narrative works of tactile literature for, and from a visually impaired readership.
The Shapereader consists of an ever expanding repertoire of anaglyph shapes called tactigrams designed to provide haptic equivalents for objects, actions, affections, characters and so on.
The first narrative work designed with the Shapereader repertoire is “Arctic Circle”, an original tactile novel of 57 pages. Shapereader is a project by conceptual artist Ilan Manouach.
