Hello, book lovers. Today I wanted to share with you some beautiful cover art for the beloved Peter Pan and Wendy story by J. M. Barrie. Each image will be linked to a website where the edition can be purchased.
This post was inspired by one of my (former?) classmates who did her research paper and presentation on J. M. Barrie’s adaptations of Peter Pan from play to novel. When I saw her cute hardback copy of Peter and Wendy, I knew I had to make this post. (No luck on finding that particular edition though)
This first one is my favorite:
I’ve been to a couple events where I got to hear MinaLima give talks and show artwork from the Harry Potter film sets, and let me tell you – they are amazing. This edition is slated to come out this June, and I am very excited. I love the metallic details on the cover. The illustrations are bound to be fantastic.

And last but not least, here is the Folio Society edition, illustrated by Debra McFarlane:
