Silence, a book to be read with the senses
Silence is a collection of poems by way of micro-stories that relate feelings and sensory experiences, in many synesthetic occasions. It is independent sentences, but also as a whole short story.
This book of poetry illustrated relief to read and play for both sighted and blind people, offering a new tactile communication for all.
The book has a cover, back cover and sheet loans, inside cover, 14 pages each with poetry represented in the two alphabets, 14 pages of illustrations and description in Braille just below these for facilitars your understanding.
Feel free to contact me on the website :)
The height of layer used was 0.2 for the pages to not have a thickness too high and the printing time is reduced. Printing temperature used was 235 degrees knowing that it obscile between 230-240 (since it is not stable) in order to create a homogeneous surface. Retractions should be as fast and far as possible to not waste that does not generate unwanted.
Each page has a bridge and 5 holes. High bridge allows to fold the pages providing greater flexibility.
The binding was intended to facilitate the DIY (do it yourself). This binding based enquadernadors is accessible anywhere in the world and also economic. In addition the page layout opens the door to multiple possible bindings.
How I Designed This
The material with which the book is printed is flexible filament, it's very elastic and comfortable to the touch.
The page dimensions are relative to the size of the medium area of the current 3D printers.
For this project, I have been fortunate to have the help of the organization ONCE (National Organization of Spanish Blind), where I have been advised about braille, I could answer questions, testing the book and validate successfully meeting the requirements to be read by blind people.
Special thanks to ONCE, Néstor y Paula :)
