Akme, an autonomous nonprofit organization, is preparing to present a guidebook for the blind and visually impaired, “A Walk Around Old Vladimir. The album will allow special tourists to “see” the main sights of the city.
The guidebook is created as part of the “Tourism without barriers” project, supported by the Presidential Grants Fund. The work on the publication was conducted for half a year. The organization found an artist who was able to implement the idea.
Everything is important here, down to texture and color. For example, black marks more three-dimensional figures, while gray marks flatter ones. Anna Meshcheryakova, head of ANO Akme, carefully checked each drawing, and then they went to printthe organization explains in a release
The publication is designed so that the tour begins at the Golden Gate and continues along Bolshaya Moskovskaya Street. The pages of the album include the Trinity Church, Dunant’s House, the Old Pharmacy, the Assumption and Dmitrievsky Cathedrals, and other sites.
The presentation of the guide will be held on March 31 in the regional library for the blind on Gorky Street. Then copies of the publication will be given to organizations that somehow help the blind: the Volga State University, the Vladimir-Suzdal Museum Reserve, a boarding school for the blind and visually impaired, the Spoon Museum, and so on.
