Pauline Baynes, the first and most iconic illustrator of both Middle-Earth and Narnia has died aged 86.
Though many people have illustrated Middle Earth, especially since the Peter Jackson films, she was Tolkien’s first choice and created the classic poster map. . Her illustrations for the Narnia books are as much to define them as Tenniel’s Alice in Wonderland.
