How the First Letter was Written - Rudyard Kipling

How the First Letter Was Written


This fantastical story tells the origin of the first letter. Our heroine Taffimai sends a picture message to her mother, and sufficiently confuses her entire tribe. Hilarity, as fans of Kipling are well aware, ensues. Beautifully illustrated by Alex Citrin, this short story offers a life lesson on the importance of clarity in communication and Humanity's need to invent the letter.

Rudyard Kipling was an immensely popular British author born in Bombay. He was the first and youngest English language writer awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He was an active Freemason and rose as high as secretary of his Lodge. He was offered knighthood several times but declined.
