As for someone's question about who put the colour in, I believe Baynes did it herself subsequently for special editions.

I think Lewis DID get to have a say about the illustrations. He certainly had the right to ask for alterations - eg rowers sitting in the boat the wrong way in PC, .


I actually own the original, corrected work.

The paperback versions have a side view of him in this scene.

"One of Harry's favorite memories is from around 1954, about the time the Narnia books were releasing. "We talked about the illustrations," Harry says. "Lewis appreciated the endearing charm of Pauline Baynes's work, but he was excited by another artist's picture of Aslan. He dived down to a bottom shelf of a bookcase, picked up a volume, opened it and laid it on my knees. It was a French edition of THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE. 'That's what I mean,' he said, pointing to a picture of Aslan leaping, streaking across the page, massive and powerful to the point of almost being terrifying. All the cuddliness was gone. There could be no question of stroking this awesome beast."
(This is from the author notes on the website Faithful Reader)

Anyone seen/can post this "French" Aslan I wonder?

Perhaps Lewis warmed to them later too? I've read a letter he wrote to her on recieving the illustrations for "The Horse and his Boy" where he says, "It is delightful to find that you do each book a little bit better than the last - it is nice to see an artist growing. (If only you cd take 6 months off and devote them to anatomy, there's no limit to your possibilities)" He then lists every picture and what he likes about it.

I also love a quote of his where he said to Pauline Baynes (about future drawings), "I know you made the children rather plain in the intrests of realism, but do you think you could possibly pretty them up a little now?" So very tactful!

He should certainly have done something about the previous mentioned illustration of Aslan walking with the witch, on his hind legs, with his paws behind his back then! :D
