Jerzy Srokowski II


Jerzy Srokowski's illustrations of J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan published in 1958. I love seeing different interpretations of illustrators to classic texts of children's literature across time and culture and how these different interpretations change our perceptions of the story. This book is a mix of soft, full colour, watercolour illustrations and detailed, expressive pen and ink drawings.
