The Chicago Lighthouse is launching a new line of Braille greeting cards!
The cards, specially designed for The Chicago Lighthouse by a local artist and packaged by participants in the Lighthouse's Industries program, celebrate the unique beauty and meaning of Braille as both a language and an art form. The pattern of the contemporary art design on the cover of each card corresponds to the embossed Braille message included inside the card.  Sales of inBraille™greeting cards support The Chicago Lighthouse's services to the blind and visually impaired, but the cards are intended to be read and enjoyed by everyone - those who can see and those who cannot

Alisa Singer is a retired corporate attorney with a lifelong passion for art.

Also adept at writing, Ms. Singer had for several years penned and illustrated a monthly column featuring humorous essays intended for female baby boomers which was published in over 20 papers and magazines in the U.S. and Canada.
