The work was originally not illustrated, apart from Gulliver's portrait on the frontispiece and four maps of his destinations. Later editions have more often than not included scenes from the fantastical stories in all kinds of styles. J.G. Thomson made upwards of 300 wood-engravings in 1864. The series by Thomas Morten appeared in the same year. Peter Pindar made an "illustrated edition for the rising generation" in 1874. An edition with one hundred and eighty coloured and sixty plain drawings by V. Armand Poirson was published in 1886. Robert MacKenzie published an edition in 1890. Charles E. Brock made a hundred pictures in 1894. Albert E. Jackson illustrated a version in 1911, Milo Winter in 1912, John Hassall in 1915, Arthur Rackham in 1937, R.G. Mossa in 1938. The illustrations by Luis Quintanilla and René Bull date from the 1940's. Chris Riddell took his turn in 2004.
The first of many attempts at a movie was made in 1902 by Georges Méliès, Le Voyage de Gulliver à Lilliput et chez les géants, but somehow the definitive Gulliver film has to yet be made, as gulliver.cc explains.
