About this work
Used by blind people for writing, this frame helps them to write with equal spacing. The paper is clamped down either side and the metal guide has a hole, large enough to write a single letter, where a pencil is placed. As the person writes the guide moves along is a straight line. A line of holes is also provided for writing in a system of dots known as Braille. The machine was made by C A Carlsson and the presented to the collections by the Swedish Government.
