The Illustrated Alice in Wonderland (The Golden Age of Illustration Series)
The Illustrated Alice in Wonderland presents work from the masters of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’, including Arthur Rackham, Gwynedd M. Hudson, John Tenniel, W. Heath Robinson, and Milo Winter. The sheer variety of artistic responses to Charles Dodgson’s story is truly fascinating; attesting to the skill of the author, and the pleasure the tale has brought to its readers. From character to character, scene to scene, there is always something new to discover. We hope you enjoy the journey.
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 has since inspired a whole generation of artists – whose many and varied responses to this ‘nonsense narrative’ are truly inspiring.
