Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book

With the release of the new Jungle Book film fast approaching, we thought we’d let you see the magical illustrations in our collection by Maurice and Edward Julius Detmold.  This set of 16 prints illustrating Kipling’s stories is considered one of the brothers’ greatest joint artworks and you can browse them all on Capital Collections.
