Text with Braille
Voir effectively plays with contrast, tactile elements and braille to encourage the reader to consider visual impairment. The blind narrator describes a game she plays with her friends Jessy and Manon in the dark. They all have to navigate numerous obstacles before reaching the kitchen, which Jessy and Manon find extremely difficult, but as they agree, the narrator has an advantage. The book ends with a philosophical question about whether when we look we truly see.
