Very nice and very orange poster which in Danish promotes Rudyard Kipling as "The world's most read author". The poster bears the text: Not only England, but the World's most read author. He Books is now coming to Danish in a new cheap edition and with new translations. Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936) was an English author and poet, best known in Denmark for his children's book Junglebogen, which was first published in English in 1894, illustrated among others by Kipling's father. Kipling was born in British India (Mumbai) and had acquired knowledge of the jungle here. He was the first British author to be awarded the Nobel Prize in 1907.

This is a very rare poster that we have never seen before, even though we know of a single copy at the Danish Poster Museum. We can not find the poster anywhere else on the internet.

We do not know when this poster is from, but we know that it is from before 1948, when people in Denmark stopped writing nouns with a capital letter. We're guessing the poster is from the 1930s.

Condition: 8/10 - Lime stain, edge cracks, large crack in the top and a little patina.
