Typhlo & Tactus is an organization dedicated to improving the quality and quantity of books with tactile illustrations available to young children with visual impairments in member countries. Begun in Europe, T&T conducts an exciting biennial international tactile book competition. The American Printing House for the Blind (APH) is the U.S. national contact organization, accepting and judging U.S. entries.
A panel of U.S. judges will review entries sent to APH and select the top 5 tactile books for final adjudication by an international panel of children and adults with visual impairments, as well as professionals in the field of vision. A single winning entry will be chosen, along with ten shortlisted books. Selected books may be featured on the T&T website, on posters, or in promotional materials used by T&T. Learn more.
