Rajasthan Style Exposes the Raw Power of Indian Culture

“To travel to Rajasthan is to leave behind the world of commotion and confusion, of gloomy gray concrete, and forget the sometimes callous modern customs of the West. In Rajasthan one encounters marvel after marvel; one is surprised by beauty in all its forms—real or imaginary—and enchantment at every turn.”

These words of introduction by Laure Vernière perfectly illustrate the spirit of this volume, and the photography of Anne Garde reveals the author’s vision of Rajasthan, the “Land of Kings” she has cherished for years.
