HH Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh of Jaipur is the eldest son of Maharaj Narendra Singh and Princess Diya Kumari, the only child of the late HH Maharaja Sawai Bhawani Singh of Jaipur and HH Maharani (now Rajmata) Padmini Devi. The princess’s parents adopted Padmanabh as their heir to the gaddi (throne) of Jaipur. His coronation as the Maharaja of Jaipur was held in 2011 at the City Palace in Jaipur. His Highness’s education began in Jaipur, after which he attended Mayo College in Ajmer and then Millfield School in England, where apart from excelling in academics he successfully pursued the sport of polo, which he continues to play professionally across the globe and as a member of the Indian national team. He went on to study liberal arts at NYU, then transferred to Università e Nobil Collegio - Sant'Eligio in Rome, where he studied cultural-heritage management and art history. In addition to his passion for polo, Maharaja Sawai Padmanabh Singh feels hugely privileged to be descended from a long line of rulers of Jaipur and is deeply committed to the preservation of the rich cultural, artistic, and architectural heritage of the city.
Something about this city draws people here, and moves them enough to return.

THE ART OF LUXURY BOOKMAKING
Since its beginnings in 1994, Assouline has been dedicated to creating books that are as informational as they are beautiful works of art. The respect for the product and the process of creation is evident in every facet – the traditional technique of hand-binding covers, the imagery that transports the reader to another place and time, the luxurious thickness of each page.
Coupling an effortless assembly with the ability to showcase every collection from Icons to Ultimates, the Assouline A Bookstand is as elegant as the titles it holds. Designed by Alex Assouline, the luxe stand, with an engraved Assouline A logo centered on both panels, comes in black, red, or clear acrylic.
