    The book does as it describes provides a visual account of court life as described through the beautiful and evocative court paintings throughout Udaipur s history.The images are reproduced full colour, many in full page or on double page spread, with numerous close ups of the interesting bits It s a large size volume so I doubt this would disappoint anyone.There are some well informed paragraphs accompanying every picture, most of which include some interesting asides about how the people are dressed, what they re carrying, symbolism of events, historical anecdotes, quotes on the subject matter by other authors or from first hand accounts, and where possible lists of names of the people depicted in the paintings often even the names of the elephants I learned a fair bit about Rajistani culture from the book, than expected.A very beautiful, colourful book I can t think of how this could be improved.9 10David BrookesAuthor of Half Discovered WIngs
