Books Info:

Journey into Barbary free pdf In the spring and summer of 1931, Wyndham Lewis travelled to the westernmost part of the Berber heartland in Morocco, known traditionally as 'Barbary'. Wanting to avoid what he called 'the Baedekered blight' of Anglo-American tourism, he set out for the majestic High Atlas mountains with pens and watercolours to record, in words and images, the rich traditional culture and changing face of the wild, isolated Berber tribes who carved a harsh life out of Morocco's remotest regions. The result is a blend of two arts, the literary skill of a detached and humorous observer, mixed with the drawings of one of the 20th century's most exciting and original artists. Through the eyes of a creative genius, Journey into Barbary is both an inimitable portrait of Morocco and one of the first truly modern accounts of a country that had for so long remained an enigma to generations of travellers.

About Wyndham Lewis

Original, ferociously witty, controversial, Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) is celebrated as a painter - co-founder of the Vorticist Movement - and writer. His most well-known novels include The Revenge for Love and Tarr, as well as a major work of fiction, The Human Age. He served in France during World War I and his subsequent paintings of war earned him a place as one of the early 20th century's most dynamic artists.
