Map of Narnia

Lewis drew this map of Narnia, but, unlike Tolkien, left the illustration of his books to a professional artist. Pauline Baynes was introduced to him by Tolkien, and redrew the map for Prince Caspian guided by Lewis’s notes at the bottom and a letter of 8 January 1951:

‘My idea was that the map should be more like a medieval map than an Ordnance Survey – mountains and castles drawn – perhaps winds blowing at the corners – and a few heraldic-looking ships, whales and dolphins in the sea.’
