Haptic poetry combines characteristics of typography and sculpture to create work not only to be seen but to be touched. This group is for anyone who values sense of touch as much as sense of sight.

"Feel the Art" haptic, and the figures can be traced with the fingertips and eyes closed, and still there is "vision". so Bifidus makes wonderful haptic :-) (not the smell of ol' cheese...but very haptic anyway!)

Also like the vintage postage stamp of Ceskoslovensko :-)
