“They say you can’t tell a book by its cover, but fortunately that hasn’t discouraged artists around the globe from producing some incredible cover art inspired by Kipling’s stories. On these pages I’ve arranged a random sampling, an even two dozen at a time, most of which link to bigger versions. Many of these covers are from my own collection. Others are taken from eBay auction listings, and a couple are from the Jungle Book Collection site, with acknowledgements to Marc.”
This is really quite something…Very interesting collection to browse.
“Standing on a stepped pedestal, in front of some typically boring Soviet-built apartment blocks, is a polychrome-painted statue, apparently sculpted in the late 1960s, depicting a lifesize nude Mowgli crouching beside Bagheera (Maugli and Bagira/Маугли и Багира in Russian) as they both peer intently into the distance.”
Despite its condition, this is still quite a nice statue.
That’s a nice website.
