Foyles Notes

Having started off as a passion for travel and a small personal project, The Atlas of Beauty is the culmination of nearly five years of exploring the world and the idea of beauty. You only need to go a few pages in to realise how much beauty there is in strength, diversity and individuality. This book is beautiful in so many ways – the images themselves are stunning, the text gives you a little insight into the lives of the women, captured during their everyday life. An important book celebrating the beauty of all women everywhere.
