The first printing (2015) of this full-length work to explore the English camping and hiking organization, Kibbo Kift (1920-1932). Founded after the First World War as a reaction to militarism in scouting, the group developed into an all-ages organization for men and women.
Underpinned by a complex, distinctive philosophy, Kibbo Kift's practices were wide-ranging, extending across health and handicraft, pacifism and propaganda, myth and magic, education and economics. The group embraced a mystical and modernist art and design aesthetic, evident in their decorated tents, campaign banners, illuminated manuscripts, protest graphics, carved totems and ceremonial attire. A second edition was reprinted in 2021. Rare in its first printing. Item #1599.
