Drawing on primary sources that sort fact from fiction, Louis Braille: A Touch of Genius is the first ever full-color biography to include 31 never-before-translated letters, some written by Braille's own hand. Unearthed from a curator's private archives in France is an extraordinary collection of documents, photographs, and artistic works that enhances the bibliographic narrative of the phases of Braille's life as student, young inventor, musician, and teacher in post-revolutionary France.
All of the images are professionally described in the braille edition.
This book is an absolute must for public, school, and university libraries. It takes a well researched, informative look at the life of the man who brought literacy to the blind of the world.
