The Vanishing Stepwells of India

Victoria Lautmann

“We do not choose our obsessions; they choose us…” This is a beautifully illustrated survey of stepwells, those staggering architectural structures for water-harvesting and conservation unique to the Indian sub-continent. Victoria Lautmann has spent 30 years travelling and researching these wonders – and peering over walls to find them – and, generous to a fault, has given each well its GPS coordinates for the keenest treasure hunters. She knows that these outstanding structures will only survive by raising public awareness.
