Watership Down Penguin pb cover 1975
contributed by Peter Thorpe

This is the 1975 UK Penguin second edition paperback cover of Watership Down by Richard Adams. It shows a cropped version (minus the sky and some background features) of Pauline's original cover art for the 1973 Puffin first edition. She also did two maps for the book. It was an international bestseller, and, aside from her work for C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien books, this cover was probably her most famous.
