Her award winning book, The Forgotten Palaces of Calcutta published in 2006 was about the heritage importance of north Kolkata’s unique mansions resulting in a push for conservation. 

Taylor’s The Great Houses of Calcutta, Their Antecedents, Precedents, Splendour and Portents, published by Niyogi Books in 2016, is co-authored by the highly respected Emeritus Professor Jon Lang. In the book, the authors have described the stories of several great houses of Kolkata.
