“dedicated to preserving the fascinating educational history of blind people”

The Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind is dedicated to preserving and presenting the fascinating educational history of blind people and the historic contributions of the American Printing House for the Blind for the benefit of the visually impaired, educators of the visually impaired, and the broader community. In 1854 a blind Kentuckian, Morrison Heady, collects donations for the embossing of Milton's Paradise Lost in raised letters. Today The last Talking Book produced on cassette for the Library of Congress at APH rolls off the line as production is converted to the new digital cartridge. For the time being, magazines continue to be issued on cassette.
