In 2019 our family had the privilege of traveling to England and Wales and on our trip we visited Bateman's, the home of Rudyard Kipling. As any good book lover would do, I sat in Kipling's study for awhile and gazed at his books. I took a picture of the room where he sat and read and wrote and this watercolor painting is my rendition of what that room looks like. Bateman's is a magical place and if you ever have a chance to visit, I highly recommend it! But even if you don't, and you're "limited" to the books he wrote, let this mug bring a bit of inspiration to your own creative reading and writing pursuits!
This coffee mug features my original illustration of Rudyard Kipling's study, from Bateman's, his home of many years in East Sussex, England.
The following quote from Rudyard Kipling is also displayed:
"I am, by calling, a dealer in words; and words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind."
The mug is dishwasher and microwave safe, and is great for hot or cold liquids. It holds approximately 11 oz. of liquid.
