POSTCARD GREETINGS
Night time messages in Braille
On the 9th of May, the German Central Library for the Blind in Leipzig will again be the “post office” of the museums night. Visitors can send a post card with a personal message in Braille to their friends or family postage-free. The recipients of this mysterious greeting from the museums night in Leipzig can decipher the message with help of the narrow Braille alphabet printed on the back.
