Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has delighted children and adults the world over for more than 100 years. Now, in an exqisite new edition of Lewis Carroll's masterwork, acclaimed Spanish illustrator Angel Dominguez captures all of the original's pungent wit and whimsy in his own surrealistic style. Artisan's beautifully designed and produced volume of Alice will be a treasured addition to the international body of classic children's literature.

Through seventy-five new watercolor illustrations, readers are reintroduced to the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, and all the other fabulously curious creatures that inhabit Alice’s imaginary universe. Alice, modern literature’s prototype of the wise child, looks squarely at this lopsided dream-world, and proclaims, “Stuff and nonsense!” Dominguez’s vivid depictions of Wonderland’s odd residents perfectly complement the utterly logical yet blatantly absurd content of Carroll’s hallmark tale.

Synopsis:

The dream-child moving through a land

Of wonders wild and new,

In friendly chat with bird or beast--

And half believe it true.

Alice, modern literature's prototype of the wise child, looks squarely at her lopsided world--with its waistcoated White Rabbit, disappearing Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Mock Turtle, and other fabulously curious creatures--and proclaims, "Stuff and nonsense!" For more than 100 years, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the story of one little girl's commonsensical approach to the absurd, has delighted children and adults the world over. In this exquisite new edition of Lewis Carroll's masterwork, acclaimed Spanish illustrator Angel Dominguez captures all of the original's pungent wit and loopy whimsy in his own surrealistic style. Through 75 new watercolor illustrations, readers journey once again down the rabbit-hole to be reacquainted with the wonderfully odd residents of Alice's imaginary universe.
