Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There – Illustrated by John Tenniel
Pook Press is proud to present Lewis Carroll’s world-famous 1871 children’s novel Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, with original illustrations by John Tenniel.
The sequel to Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland (1865), this classic children’s tale sees Alice entering to a fantastical realm after she climbs through a mirror into the world that she can see on the other side. Once there, she realises that, just like a reflection in a mirror, absolutely everything is backwards.
Wonderfully illustrated by John Tenniel and introducing such famous verses as “The Walrus and the Carpenter” and “Jabberwocky”, Carroll’s fantastic sequel continues to inspire and entertain children almost a century and a half after it was first published.
John Tenniel (1820–1914), famed for his political satire, sharp lines and delicate arrangement, was a true master of the Golden Age of Illustration. Tenniel penned a total of ninety-two black and white drawings for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. Both works were instant best-sellers and now rank amongst the most famous literary illustrations of all time.
