Entry Description

The book project is called Chinese Character Practice Book—No Print Book.I design these books which gives learners tactile and visual way to learn Chinese characters not only for sighted people and also blind people. Instead of printing the Chinese Character Practice Book Traditionally which can be harmful to the environment, I hollowed out the characters in the books. The white lines go through the Braille holes to form two Chinese characters on the cover. The books are hand bound without the use of any glue.
