To celebrate, I am sharing the illustration commissioned by Sage as part of Trailblazers, a campaign to pay tribute to inspirational women ‘who have forged the path to bring positive change in their respective fields.’
The photograph is reproduced by the kind permission of Sage. You can download their high-resolution poster of Joan here.
Join me on 24 June 2017 to celebrate the centenary of Joan’s birthday. I will be digging deep into my Joan research and sharing ten things you never knew about Joan Clarke.
