Well, she was commissioned to illustrate the very first editions, so her artwork and Lewis's storytelling simply go hand in hand. :)

I saw a fabulous theatrical production of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe four years ago, put on by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Absolutely wonderful - very faithful to the book, and it made fantastic theatre! :) The sets and costumes were superb, and very much inspired by Baynes's designs, right down to the White Witch's icicle crown. :)

Perhaps there are production photos of this staging somewhere on the web? It would be cool to see them.

I'm so glad you brought up Pauline Baynes' work, Pearl. If I hadn't been inspired to Google up her stuff, I would never have seen those Narnia illustrations. The copies I had bought back in college had the work of some other, lesser illustrator. Even the ones I re-shelve a the library are illustrated by someone else.

SACRILEGE!!!!!!!

I googled for production photos but have not found any so far ... will post them if I find anything. I found this snippet on the RSC website: "The Snow Queen in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (2002) wore a hat with stripped ostrich quills. Each quill had to be hologrammed and painted." They mean the White Witch. Tut tut! *rolls eyes*

This is interesting:
