The Silk Road

£35.00

Product description

Hardback, First edition, published in 2003 by Feierabend. Text in English and Spanish.
Black cloth covered boards with title in silver on spine and front cover. Illustrated dust jacket in "As New" condition. Spine very slightly bumped top and bottom, otherwise the book is in "as New" condition.

The photographer Alessandra Meniconzi has spent a decade travelling along the over 2000 year-old trade route that links East and West: the Silk Road. On her mountain bike, she followed the traces of the countless merchants that once transported valuable spices, fabrics and jewellery along this route from Turkey via Uzbekistan and Tajikistan to Tibet, and from Pakistan over the Hindu Kush and on to China. On her travels, she not only crossed the endless steppes and some of the most impressive mountain ranges in the world, her sensitive, understanding nature allowed her to gain access to lives that often remain hidden to the photographer's lens. The photographs featured in this collection provide a comprehensive, personal insight into the lives of people who live along the former Silk Roads and are fighting for the survival of their traditions in modern Asia.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
