Peter Pan and Wendy by JM Barrie – Illustrated by Anne Grahame Johnstone

A little while ago I found a version of Peter Pan and Wendy illustrated by Anne Grahame Johnstone and first published in 1988 by Award Publications Ltd. I am sort of collecting Anne and Janet Grahame Johnstone books – picking them up whenever I see them. I particularly like their attention to period details (especially in the costumes). Many of their fairy story illustrations are beautiful – with their 17th and 18th Century style costumes.

But here’s Anne’s version of Peter Pan and Wendy (in equally lovely Edwardian and fantasy costume).
