About the Book

Alice's Wonderland: A Visual Journey Through Lewis Carroll's Mad, Mad World

ALICE'S WONDERLAND dives down the rabbit hole and looks at the dazzling ways that Wonderland has been imagined by artists, filmmakers, writers and more. Get a behind-the-scenes looks at how the books were created, meet Alice Liddell, the inspiration for the fictional Alice and view the original manuscript copy of ALICE IN WONDERLAND, illustrated in Carroll's own hand.

The fantastical world imagined by Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) --- where a white rabbit carries a pocket watch, a crying baby morphs into a squealing pig and a flamingo is used as a croquet mallet --- has inspired countless artists to produce some of their best work. Illustrators such as John Tenniel, chose to tackle the work directly, producing illustrations, films and shows that strive to accurately depict Wonderland. Others, such as artist Salvador Dali and director Tim Burton, freely adapted Dodgson's creation, using it as a springboard for their own incredible interpretations. Lushly illustrated paintings, artwork and sketches, ALICE'S WONDERLAND explores how artists in different fields like art, music, theater, film and more have interpreted Carroll's works through the ages. A must-have book for any Alice fan.
