Blind Horizon


Camille started Horizons with a dream of making things accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired. Blind since birth, she realized even as a child that experiencing life and interacting with the world should not be limited to those who viewed things in traditional ways.

From two volunteers working out of her basement in Chicago, Horizons has grown to be a leading provider of braille, large print and audio transcription services to the blind and visually impaired community under her leadership.

Camille believed that it was a fundamental right to have access to the printed word. People who are blind or visually impaired have the same right to get this information, without assistance, as sighted consumers. This not only speaks to the issue of accessibility but also of privacy and independence.

Camille took great pride in not only providing material in an accessible format, but also that Horizons could provide employment for blind and low vision employees, who are instrumental in the production process.

Horizons for the Blind is an organization dedicated to improving self-reliance, by increasing accessibility, for blind and visually impaired individuals throughout the United States. Horizons is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization located in Crystal Lake Illinois. We serve the needs of our constituents by providing programs and services to Consumers, Non Profits, and the Business Community. Horizons works together as a team of blind, visually impaired, disabled and sighted individuals to produce the best product possible.

Horizons offers a variety of products and services for blind and visually impaired people around the world. Our online catalog (Gadget Gallery) offers over 400 items, including Braille and Large Print cookbooks, books on plants and gardening, books and kits on crafts, knitting and crochet patterns as well as seasonal baking items complete with Braille and Large Print instructions.

Our catalog also offers Braille and Large Print books on poetry, medical tips, household hints, some that puzzle the mind and some that are just fun to read. For more information, please visit our Product Catalog page or request a free catalog by e-mail at or by calling 815-444-8800.

blind horizon is like your old high school friend's usual movie pitch when he's drunk at 2am and you're also drunk so you go "woaaaaah dude that rocks" except it's real and you're sober so you realise it's kinda dog shit and it looks like it was made with 30 minutes of footage stretched into feature length purely by the power of flashbacks and the editor has only worked on telenovelas and the sound designer is the guy adding the sound effects to american kitchen nightmare episodes. watching it is like trying to do a four piece jigsaw puzzle where the pieces are tennis balls. this had to be a money laundering scheme i can't make sense of it otherwise.

The Sub-Himalayan fold-thrust belt consists of deformed late Cenozoic and older deposits south of the Main Boundary thrust (MBT). In Pakistan, east of the Indus River, the Sub-Himalaya comprises the Potwar Plateau and the Salt Range, which is thrust southward over the Jhelum River floodplain along the Salt Range thrust. Although an estimated 9-14 mm a -1 shortening has been taken up on the Salt Range thrust during the last 2 Ma, the range-front scarp does not show signs of recent faulting. Shortening may be shifting southward to the Lilla overpressured anticline, which rises from the Jhelum floodplain as a fault-propagation fold. Farther east, shortening is partitioned among several anticlines underlain by foreland- and hinterland-dipping blind thrusts. Southeast of the main deformation zone, the Pabbi Hills overpressured anticline is best explained as a fault-propagation fold. Throughout the Potwar Plateau and Salt Range, thrusts and folds rise from a basal décollement horizon in Eocambrian evaporites. The Pakistani part of the décollement horizon could generate lar
