Drawing and the Blind: Pictures to Touch

by John Fitzgerald Kennedy

This book overturns the conventional wisdom that people who have been totally blind since birth or early childhood have no interest in or capacity to understand tactual drawings. Kennedy and his colleagues conducted a series of studies with blind children and adults in Toronto, Haiti, and Arizona, and assessed the drawings which their subjects produced. They found that blind people had a seemingly instinctive grasp of two-dimensional representation even though they had had no prior exposure to it. The book is scholarly but highly readable.
