I am truly lucky to find this amazing book off at Booksale for 300 PHP (about 7USD )about 2 weeks ago. This is a traveling book and an exhibition of the most beautiful and inspiring photographs taken by women during the 1800s and the 1900s, a time when women where only limited to domestic living imposed by Victorian mores. I shall have you read this book's description in here for a rather almost-detailed summary of the book.
There are about 200 photographs exhibited and were found on this book, but I only have a few to show you. Most of which are my favorites. You can click on the photo to view the name of the photograph/s and the photographer. But if it's too blurry, I'll provide them anyhow.
