'North Africa' by Isabella Bird

Isabella Bird was a keen photographer and artist, and documented her travels with her own drawings and photographs. This provides us with a fantastic visual record of the places she traveled to, at a time when it was rare for women to leave England, let alone solo travel around the world.
