Three short articles about tactile illustrating are presented for braille transcribers and teachers of the visually handicapped. Some transcribers have been making tactile maps with water areas textured and land masses smooth; the first article reports on the confusion these "reversed maps" cause braille readers and gives additional tips for designing and producing tactile maps. The second article focuses on tactile illustrating and tells when to enlarge, how to reproduce a geometric shape in embossed form, and where to place keys and transcriber notes. The final article gives recommendations for creating embossed displays of clocks and for making three-dimensional representations. (LH)
