Charity Shop Find

Check out this beautiful copy of Rudyard Kipling’s Kim that I found on holiday in a charity shop.  They certainly don’t make children’s books like this any more.

Printed in 1935, this edition is leather bound with gold in-layed design.  It is also complete with illustrations by Kipling’s father, John Lockwood Kipling.

I love it.  Kipling is a genius and this little hand-held work of art makes reading his words even more enjoyable.
