Rudyard Kipling (1865 –1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He is most famous for “The Jungle Book" (1894), "If" (1895) and "Kim" (1901).He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story. Kipling was one of the most popular writers in the United Kingdom in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the eternal green of the jungle one can lose themselves, and also find exciting stories. Rudyard Kipling used the jungle to imagine one of the most exciting children’s books of all time. This collection honours the author’s prolific works. The overall colour, jungle green, is inspired by the cover of the book's first U.S. edition, with the clip taking inspiration from the wolf pack. The cap is engraved with Kipling's handwritten initials R.K. The beginning and end of the well-known poem "If" is engraved on the cap top and cone ring. The skeleton overlay on the cap (monkey) is inspired by the story “Kaa’s hunting” from The Jungle Book, which is a short story featuring Mowgli and the monkeys. The pattern on the barrel depicts the texture of a tiger, which refers to Shere Khan. The engraving of cold lairs (an abandoned human city from the Jungle Book) on the the cap is inspired by the city Chittorgarh which Kipling visited. The nib reminds of the elephant from the cover of the Jungle book. The 18 karat gold nib of the piston fountain pen is available in several sizes. The fountain pen version of this edition is limited to 1.895 pieces.
