Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The irony and satire of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland acquires a new life with Ralph Steadman's audacious and dynamic illustrations. This book is a beautiful new edition of Steadman's 1968 work.

Synopsis:

A beautiful new edition of Steadman's 1968 work, now available in paperback.

The force of social satire and fantasy in the original text of Alice in Wonderland is as relevant today as when the book was first published in 1865. In this edition, Ralph Steadman's drawings remain faithful to the book's satirical tone while revealing his own passion for irony.

This version of Carroll's classic tale is a startling departure from the traditional Victorian or Disney approaches. In his introduction, Steadman describes how a fresh illustrative perspective created an original, modern vision. The story acquires new life with his audacious and dynamic illustrations.

The 47 pen-and-ink illustrations are the same as in the critically acclaimed 1968 British edition. Reformatted and meticulously restored, they convey the energy, imagination and power of Steadman's pen and introduce the wit and wisdom of Alice to a new generation of readers.

Synopsis:

A comprehensive narrative on how people interacted with the night sky, from the earliest superstitions through to the science of astronomy. Written by expert astronomers and featuring interviews with 26 of the world's best, including Stephen Hawking.
