The year 2000 marks the 50th anniversary of first publication of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. This calendar commemorates 50 years of one of the most famous and well-loved children's stories of all time. It features 14 of the 21 full colour paintings from the abridged picture book, illustrated by Christian Birmingham, whose rich pastel and delicate pencil illustrations have exquisitely captured C S Lewis's combination of magical fantasy and realism. Favourite scenes such as Lucy meeting Mr Tumnus, Edmund eating Turkish Delight in the White Witch's sledge, Aslan bringing statues back to life and Father Christmas giving the children their presents are featured, with a gorgeous double-sized pull-out poster of Edmund and the White Witch. As with the well-established and highly successful Tolkien Calendars, we plan to publish an annual Narnia calendar, the next one featuring coloured illustrations by Pauline Baynes selected from the seven Chronicles of Narnia.
