Re: Library of Historic Art in Tactile Form
"I believe it is a very progressive and useful concept which should be developed further. It could make a substantial contribution to introducing blind and partially-sighted people to the world of painting and art."

"The Royal London Society for the Blind has passed me some very interesting information on the tactile pictures you produce."

"When I took examples of your work to
the Advice group(Teachers of art with the Visually Impaired)
they were considered to be the best examples of work of this type.
There seems to be very little work of quality of this type in the country
and I feel you are catering for a lack in provision."

"Thank you for arranging for Sunflowers to be brought to our centre. I feel that this type of work will be of interest."

"Thank you again for producing such a beautiful representation of the Gaugin picture-a real work of art in its own right."

DAVID BLUNKETT MP "Can I commend you on the effort and time you have taken to make the works of Van Gogh come alive in tactile form."

Donations have been gratefully received from the following:
