The Sesquicentennial ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’

The one-hundred-and-fiftieth anniversary edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from Inky Parrot Press, in which every chapter was allocated its own artist/illustrator, is now out. It’s a beautiful volume. I now have a niggling itch to design a whole edition of the book.

  1. OH WOW!!!
    With un dying love from
    ‘The White Queen,’ complete with comb in her hair.
    I’ve always sort of liked the ‘looking glass’ world just as much, maybe more?
    Oh Clive, just imagine you drawing the `White Knight’ and him having a look of ‘Bampy Trevor’, oh, oh….and imagine and imagine….
    W Queen (aka)

  2. I have never been able to see the point in Alice. Was probably made to read it at the wrong moment in my childhood. But this looks great, so I decided to give the book a second chance. And went to Amazon U.K. to order it. But they did not list it. So I googled The Inky Parrot Press, found an e-mail address, and wrote to try and order the book.
    I hope I’ll get an answer, and they will be able to charge via Pay Pal, and send the book to Spain.

    Thank you anyway.
    Maybe this time, i will enjoy the book thanks to the illustrations.

    ( I have to admit I was never able to finish “El Quijote”, apart from the adaptations they obliged my children to read at school. I am gathering my courage to try again, with one of the old beautiful editions I inherited from my grandmother )
