The Princeton Braillists produce books of tactile maps for blind braille readers. The maps, both political and physical, are of individual US States and of countries around the world and generally show such features as boundaries, cities, rivers, bodies of water, and mountains.

The maps are detailed, labeled in braille only, and some experience with tactile drawings is recommended.

Maps and drawings are created by hand in an aluminum foil sheet. The metal is embossed with a variety of tools to produce raised lines and areas of varying height, texture and width. The maps are labelled with key letters that are identified on the pages preceding each map. The master drawing is duplicated by the Thermoform process to make clear, sharp copies. The 11 x 11 1/2 inch plastic sheets are bound into volumes with cardboard covers and spiral plastic binders.

The Princeton Braillists is a small group of senior citizen volunteers whose goal is to make high quality but inexpensive tactile maps and drawings for blind people of all ages.
