Pauline Baynes (September 9, 1922 - August 1, 2008) was an English book illustrator, whose work encompassed more than 100 books, notably those by C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. She was born in Hove, Sussex.

Baynes also painted the covers for the British 1973 one-volume and 1981 three-volume paperback editions of The Lord of the Rings, and produced illustrated poster versions of the maps from The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Her favorite of her own works was Grant Uden's Dictionary of Chivalry, an illustration project which required two years to complete, and which was recognized with the Kate Greenaway Medal.
