From the world’s first female programmer to the first British woman to sail solo around the world non-stop, the Emma Press book Once Upon a Time in Birmingham: Women Who Dared to Dream is a lively introduction to 30 of Birmingham’s most awe-inspiring women, past and present.
We are delighted to be exhibiting the 30 illustrations that were commissioned for the book, all of which were created by up-and-coming female illustrators in Birmingham.
Proceeds from book sales will go into a legacy fund which aims to help female pupils realise their own dreams. Buy your copy at The Emma Press
