Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few books of the past 200 years have captured the imagination of illustrators as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has. The original edition of Lewis Carroll's 1865 masterpiece featured 42 woodblock engravings by John Tenniel. Created in close collaboration with the author, Tenniel's visions of the young heroine and her extraordinary encounters were but the first of many interpretations of Wonderland. This compilation explores a century and a half of exuberant, imaginative artistic conceptions of Alice's world.

More than 100 images include Tenniel's engravings, along with color and black-and-white illustrations by Arthur Rackham, Charles Robinson, Bessie Pease Gutmann, Margaret Tarrant, Millicent Sowerby, Milo Winter, Thomas Maybank, and many others. Editor Jeff Menges offers commentary on the illustrators and their work, and noted collector Mark Burstein shares a bibliophile's perspective. A major contribution to the history of modern book illustration, Alice Illustrated will delight lovers of English literature and children's books, collectors of Lewis Carroll's works, and fans of the great illustrators.

Synopsis:

This original compilation features color and black-and-white interpretations of Wonderland by dozens of artists, including Rackham, Robinson, and original illustrator Tenniel. A commentary by editor Jeff Menges discusses the artists and their work.
