UNICORN IN THE NEWS
THE TUAREG OR KEL TAMASHEQ, THE PEOPLE WHO SPEAK TAMASHEQ AND THE HISTORY OF THE SAHARA by Henrietta Butler featured in the Daily Mail.

Romanticised by nineteenth-century explorers as mysterious ‘people of the veil’, but with a reputation too as fearsome warriors, the nomadic Tuareg have been the guardians of the Sahara for over a thousand years. This book by photographer Henrietta Butler was accompanied by a Tuareg exhibition in London at The Royal Geographical Society in June 2015.
