Illustrations to Kipling’s Jungle Book

4 June – 31 July, 1993

Not the Disney version, but sixteen beautiful turn-of-the century colour proofs by Maurice and Edward Detmold (1903) of subjects from Rudyard Kipling’s Jungle Book. All of the favourite characters are here: Bagheera, Baloo, Shere Khan and Mowgli himself, in wonderfully dignified images selected from the Kipling Collection, Dalhousie University Libraries.
