Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Illustrated by George Soper


Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Illustrated by George Soper

‘Alice in Wonderland’ is the best known work of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – 1898), better known by his pen name, ‘Lewis Carroll’. Telling the tale of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by surreal and anthropomorphic creatures, the book was a huge commercial success on its initial publication in 1865. It was followed by its sequel, ‘Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There’, in 1871. The books play at the heart of logical problems and literary nonsense – giving the narrative lasting popularity with adults and children alike.

Originally published in 1929, this edition of the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ story is accompanied by the stunning artwork of George Soper. Soper (1870 – 1942), was an etcher and painter, widely known for his rustic scenes and lively animals. His delicate colour plates and beautifully detailed line drawing compliment the story perfectly – adding even more dream-like magic to Alice’s fantastical realm. Soper’s illustrations and Lewis Carroll’s text are presented side-by-side, so that the two may be better appreciated.
