Pauline Baynes: Alternate Visions
Pauline Baynes is familiar to most people as the illustrator of C. S. Lewis' Narnia Chronicles, and, to a lesser extent, the works of J. R. R. Tolkien. But as a professional artist she produced work for many more books, magazines, and posters. Seeing these often causes a weird sensation for me, like seeing an alternate world that has gone on for years, side by side with the familiar one, but unknown.
