HarperCollins commissioned two-time Caldecott winner Chris Van Allsburg to create the cover, and although he rarely agrees to do so for other authors' works, he readily agreed to do create this 1994 cover.
In October of 1950, the first of seven fantasy novels in the Narnia series was published. C.S. Lewis has since influenced and affected generations of readers and writers. As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of Lewis's death, we take a look back at "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" covers over the years.
