“Love Story: We know a thing or two about guidebooks so thought it appropriate to give props to the insightful, Indian-centric Love Travel Guides series. Each book is beautifully printed and teeming with tips that could only be gleaned by local knowledge”.Wallpaper
“These cherishable guides are a gold mine of local know how. I was so impressed. For one thing, it's their appearance: each is hand-bound using old Indian paper making techniques, with a hand-woven khadi cover. Caulfield's local knowledge is compelling, especially her encyclopedic shopping savvy - always handy in India. I'll never shop in India again without her. The loving way she compiled them is a rarity.”

“Books are better than Google. They're better than Pinterest. Get a book and read it with a cup of tea. Get excited. Write notes in it. Bend the corners of the pages with the places you want to visit. Take it with you on the planes and trains. Circle things. Underline things. Get it grubby. Then bring it home and tuck it away onto your bookshelf, safely holding a million memories and the essence of your Indian journey” The Silk Road
