Nancy Amick and Ruth Bogia, working as The Princeton Braillists, developed the tactile map books more than 20 years ago. They continued to work together until Ruth’s death in 2014. Nancy began making drawings about 50 years ago to accompany text books being recorded by Recording for the Blind. She was a pioneer in developing the metal foil technique introduced by Recording for the Blind in 1964. Fran Gasman joined the group in 2005 and, as a certified braillist, works with Nancy to produce new map books. Phyllis Branin finishes books by punching and binding the volumes. Nancy’s husband, James Amick, takes care of the computer and secretarial chores. We are all senior citizen volunteers.
