    In this handsome volume, Kip Scott offers an evocative photographic portrait of centuries-old mansions dotted across the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan. British and European influences mingle with distinctive Indian features in these buildings, which are often decorated with richly coloured frescoes. Abandoned by owners who have headed for the cities, many of these stunning mansions are crumbling away, threatened by vandalism, encroaching urbanism or rampant nature – and sometimes by all three. The photographs are left to speak for themselves after a foreword by historian Lal Singh Shekhawati and brief introduction from Scott – and speak they do, loudly and clearly, of another time and another world.
