Alice in Wonderland is one of the most beloved children's book of all times. Gathered here for the first time are more than one hundred illustrations by six of the greatest illustrators of all time making this the most lavishly illustrated edition ever available of this delightful book. You and your family will treasure it for years to come. Included are the original John Tenniel illustrations as well as Lewis Carroll's own sketches that he did for the very first edition. We've also included the very rare and seldom seen illustrations of John R. Neill who so famously illustrated L. Frank Baum's Oz books and rounded the book out with amazing work from Arthur Rackham, Gordon Robinson, and Harry Rountree.
Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has continuously delighted readers, young and old, for more than a century. This classic tale, interpreted by many outstanding artists over the years, is a remarkable story of one little girl who embarks on possibly one of the most amazing adventures in literary history. In this stunning special edition, Helen Oxenbury turns her hand to what is certainly no small project and has succeeded in surpassing expectation. More abundantly illustrated than other editions of the same work, this unabridged version is packed with contemporary and accessible interpretations of the kaleidoscope of characters--the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts--who have each captured the imaginations of generations of children. Alice herself is portrayed as a thoroughly modern miss--casually dressed, personable, and spirited--and her surroundings are brought to effervescent life with a warmth, depth, and distinctive sense of humor that perfectly complement the shenanigans of the topsy-turvy world of Wonderland.
