Stamp commemorates Braille pioneer

An Post has issued a new 55-cent stamp to commemorate the bicentenary of the birth in 1809 of Louis Braille, the inventor of the reading and writing system used by the blind and visually impaired.

The stamp features an eye in black ink on a white background with the 55-cent denomination in Braille. The sharp black and white contrast is intended to maximise vision for those with sight impairment.

The stamp is An Post's second Braille stamp
