Alice's Adventures in Wonderland has delighted children and adults the world over for more than 100 years. Now, in an exqisite new edition of Lewis Carroll's masterwork, acclaimed Spanish illustrator Angel Dominguez captures all of the original's pungent wit and whimsy in his own surrealistic style. Artisan's beautifully designed and produced volume of Alice will be a treasured addition to the international body of classic children's literature.

Through seventy-five new watercolor illustrations, readers are reintroduced to the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, the Mock Turtle, and all the other fabulously curious creatures that inhabit Alice’s imaginary universe. Alice, modern literature’s prototype of the wise child, looks squarely at this lopsided dream-world, and proclaims, “Stuff and nonsense!” Dominguez’s vivid depictions of Wonderland’s odd residents perfectly complement the utterly logical yet blatantly absurd content of Carroll’s hallmark tale.

Review:

Source of legend and lyric, reference and conjecture, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is for most children pure pleasure in prose. While adults try to decipher Lewis Carroll's putative use of complex mathematical codes in the text, or debate his alleged use of opium, young readers simply dive with Alice through the rabbit hole, pursuing "The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new." There they encounter the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mock Turtle, and the Mad Hatter, among a multitude of other characters--extinct, fantastical, and commonplace creatures. Alice journeys through this Wonderland, trying to fathom the meaning of her strange experiences. But they turn out to be "curiouser and curiouser," seemingly without moral or sense.

For more than 130 years, children have reveled in the delightfully non-moralistic, non-educational virtues of this classic. In fact, at every turn, Alice's new companions scoff at her traditional education. The Mock Turtle, for example, remarks that he took the "regular course" in school: Reeling, Writhing, and branches of Arithmetic-Ambition, Distraction, Uglification, and Derision. Carroll believed John Tenniel's illustrations were as important as his text. Naturally, Carroll's instincts were good; the masterful drawings are inextricably tied to the well-loved story.
