Moon: Light for the Blind
From William Moon's book Light for the Blind, London: Longmans & Co., 1877.
"God gave me blindness as a talent to be used for His glory. Without blindness I should never have been able to see the needs of the blind."
- William Moon
William Moon lost his sight to illness in 1839, when he was 21. In 1845, he developed an embossed alphabet for his blind students. Omniglot says Moon was "soon swamped with requests for parts of Bible. " Moon type still has some readers today.
