0302, Tactile Picture Books Project
These book pages were created by the Tactile Picture Books Project. The team is using tactile illustrations and braille to transcribe currently available children's books for blind and visually impaired children. A simplified, web-based 3D modeling platform enables parents and teachers to design, customize, and print tactile books. 3D models created and shared within this web-based system are easily copied and modified by others.

Quilt Basket Rope
Three patterns are depicted: puffy squares with soft, rounded edges, a basket-weave pattern, and a braided rope.
Together they built ice forts. They went whale watching.
At the top, a domed igloo is made of rectangular blocks. Underneath, the round top of a whale and a curved, splashing tail emerge from a wavy shape. Curves spout from the top of the whale.
