Joseph Hunwick’s Book: The Hidden Treasures of Timbuktu


“For centuries, camel caravans made epic journeys across the Sahara to reach the legendary city of Timbuktu, where they traded salt, gold, slaves, textiles and books.  The astonishing manuscripts of Timbuktu reveal great craftsmanship as well as learning.   Joseph Hunwick has made many journeys to Timbuktu. His images brilliantly capture the faded majesty of the city and the dignity and warmth of its modern-day inhabitants. “

 Commissioned by Publishers Thames & Hudson and The University of Oslo in cooperation with the Library owners and people of Timbuktu.
