Rudyard Kipling's “If” is a poem written in 1910 originally dedicated to the author's son. Prompted by the revolutionary attempts of a coup, it touts the notions of perseverance and triumph through adversity. Originally appearing in a Kipling's collection of poetry and Fiction, it has been reproduced several times partially and in full via reprint and song adaptations.
The red wood textured border and antique style text make this an excellent focal point for any Victorian or antique themed office, living room, or hallway. Framed or canvas transferred, it exemplifies the advantages of text and literature as visually enduring and thought-provoking wall art. In addition, "If" makes a great graduation, transitional, or inspirational gift for lovers of poetry, music and art alike.
