The Nubia Issue

For its 63rd issue, Brownbook focuses on contemporary Nubia, exploring the region between south Egypt and north Sudan, where villages trail the path of the Nile and serene islands sit on its surface. This issue moves with fluidity and resolve, carried by the voices of the people that have preserved, revived and evolved Nubia, to make it the formidable society it is today.
