Tiny-Book Publisher Is Losing Her Vision
The LATimes is Reporting Barbara Raheb, who produced 530 miniature titles in 27 years, is suffering from macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness for people older than 60. Those with the malady find that the central portion of their field of vision is covered by a gray blob.
