Celebrate 150 years of Alice in Wonderland

Lewis Carroll‘s tale of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by surreal and fantastic creatures has enchanted children and adults alike for over 150 years. Over the last century and a half it has also been the challenge of many illustrators to reimagine and recreate Wonderland to delight time and time again.
Pook Press is proud to present a collection of illustrated editions of Alice in Wonderland from the Golden Age of Illustration including illustrators such as Frank Adams, Arthur Rackham, Margaret Tarrant and Charles Robinson.
We are also now publishing a collection of these wonderful illustrations all in one volume alongside this classic tale. The Illustrated Alice in Wonderland contains over 200 images from the many editions from the masters of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’.
