Peter Pan illustrated by Eric Kincaid

Found at the same time as the Alice in Wonderland in my last post. This is another WHSmith exclusive edition, published by Brimax Books in 1990. This edition is adapted from Barrie’s original by Peter Oliver.

‘Second to the right, and straight on till morning.’ That, Peter had told Wendy, as the way to Neverland.

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).
