Narnia through the Ages: 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' covers
Pauline Baynes, 1997
Pauline Baynes illustrated a new cover cover for "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" in 1997. This cover was for the gift edition of the novel, with thicker paper, full color art, and a satin ribbon market.
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.
