This manual is based on the work I've done at the Netherlands Library for Audio Books and Braille, which was almost exclusively on books for secondary schools. I have never occupied myself with mobility maps, and I think they're entirely different from my kind of relief drawings.
My graphics are put into relief on the stereo paper produced by Matsumoto, Osaka. As this paper has a finer grain, or is more sensitive than the Swedish product, it allows for stronger contrasts, like fine dots and thin lines next to solid black areas: it is more versatile. It's also more expensive, though, and unfortunately less pleasant to the touch too.
