Christian Birmingham, 2000

For the 50th anniversary of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," Christian Birmingham illustrated the cover art for the 2000 abridged picture book version of the novel.
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.
