A slipcase hardcover edition of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, brought newly to life by the lavish illustrations of Brecht Evens.

The beloved classic fantasy adventure Peter Pan (originally published in 1911 as Peter and Wendy), has been adapted countless times for film, stage, and spin-offs — but it's never been seen as depicted by the brushwork of celebrated Belgian cartoonist Brecht Evens. 

This elaborately illuminated version of Barrie's perennial masterwork takes an inventive approach to world-building, treating Neverland as an imaginative space of infinite possibility to explore. Pirate ships, lost cities, fairy societies, unknowable beasts and magical creatures — each of which fall, as Barrie wrote, 'somewhere between reality and all we've ever dreamed.'
