I was trying to think of what classic story I would want to illustrate. Two that came to mind were McBroom's Zoo, which I love but surely couldn't improve upon Walter Lorraine's work, and The Jungle Book, which my wife just got me as an audio book. I realized I hadn't seen what the original illustrations looked like, so I did a little search and was surprised to see that Kipling illustrated the original book himself, just as Dr. Dolittle was illustrated by author Hugh Lofting. I managed to find one really neat woodcut of Kipling's, seen above. So it's always good to realize that there is not such a great chasm between authors and illustrators.
