Includes Sir John Tenniel’s classic illustrations, along with a gallery of art from six different artists’ interpretations!
Mix equal parts creativity, bewilderment, and complete nonsense and you have Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. On a day that begins like any other, Alice notices a rabbit—a rabbit with a pocket watch. She chases after it and stumbles down a hole… and keeps falling and falling and falling. That’s when things start to get weird. She encounters a bizarre cast of characters — the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, a pipe-smoking caterpillar, the Pigeon, a Duchess, the Cook, and the decapitation-happy Queen of Hearts. It’s an adventure of completely intolerable logic, as witty as it is completely insane.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland gets another makeover in a new edition illustrated by Iassen Ghiuselev. Beginning with a gouache painting that combines elements from the entire story into one fantastical scene, Ghiuselev's illustrations continue by alternating seemingly gilded paintings of Alice interacting realistically with Mouse and Duck and Dodo, and burgundy-hued pencil drawings, all of which emphasize the dreamlike qualities of the text. This large-trim (9" x 13"), limited edition includes a bookmark.

Nice book, but could’ve been better
It was a very interesting book, but I do wish it had more details, so I could visualize it in my head, and when I did look at the pictures at the end of the book, it was totally different than I imagined.
And kinda disappointed that it was just all a dream, and could’ve explained some scenes more clearly.
But still a great book to read.
One of my all time favorites, Lewis Caroll is a genius.
Very good book
