Pauline Baynes, 2000
Pauline Baynes re-illustrated "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" in 2000 for the 50th anniversary of the novel. This edition featured full color artwork created by Pauline Baynes, unlike her original artwork in 1950, which featured detailed black and white sketches throughout the story.
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.
