How the Camel Got His Hump

Rudyard Kipling, L. Zwerger, R. Kipling. NorthSouth, $16.5 (24pp) ISBN 978-0-7358-1483-7

Lisbeth Zwerger breathes new life into a tale from Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories, How the Camel Got His Hump. With scenes framed in a white border, Zwerger's earth-toned paintings convey the dryness of the desert in which the story takes place; patterned scarves, maps and floral friezes rest beneath, while elements from the narrative appear as spot art.
