Cliff Nielsen, 2002

To replace the 1994 mass market edition with cover art by Leo and Diane Dillion, Cliff Nielsen illustrated this cover of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe." This version was published in 2002.
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.
