Pauline BaynesTheOneRing.net is saddened today by the loss of a talented artist in the fantasy realm: Pauline Baynes. Forum member N.E. Brigand alerted us to the following story:

Wayne Hammond reports the death of Baynes at her home in Surrey. Pauline Baynes was the original illustrator of C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia series, as well as of Tolkien’s Farmer Giles of Ham (1948), The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and Other Verses from the Red Book (1962), and Smith of Wootton Major (1967).
