The Jungle Book: Illustrations for a Premium Edition by Levente Szabó

We had about three weeks to finish the cover and the inner illustrations before the new movie premiered. The book consists of multiple chapters and poems – the longer stories received ink style b&w illustrations.”

Disney’s Jungle Book was the first movie I saw at a theatre. I have yet to see the live-action version released this year, but I was thrilled to discover the amazing artwork Levente Szabó created for a premium edition of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book published by Helikon. Pity it is only available in Hungarian, I would love to re-read it alongside with these graphics.

You can view a selection of illustrations below as well as a wider range on Behance, but make sure to visit his portfolio as well.
