The Barbour Watercolour Gallery shows works from the Laing’s extensive collection of Watercolour paintings.
This installation is designed to contain a tactile book of some of these paintings made by Sue King and her team at the RNIB.
A rigid, leather outer binder is imprinted with Braille and large print text, which describes the contents. There is a laminated inner binder which holds the pages in place.
The inner binder can be easily removed from the outer binder to enable the Laing watercolour team to add a new tactile book with each new exhibition, with the object of building a tactile archive.
