Peake is best known for his writing, particularly the 'Gormenghast' novels, but he was also a talented painter and illustrator. He made the island of Sark, part of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, his home on two separate occasions; firstly as a young man as part of the Sark Group (1933–1935) and then again with his family (1946–1949). The island served as inspiration for his writing, illustrating and painting, seen clearly in his illustrations for 'Treasure Island'.
