Both celebrated political cartoonists of their day, for Punch and the Observer respectively, Tenniel and Riddell have much in common. These exceptional artists created some of the most loved and iconic children’s illustrations of the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries.
This is a gorgeously produced hardback with foiled jacket, head and tail bands and a ribbon marker, and it is lavishly illustrated in full colour throughout by Chris Riddell. This is a beautiful gift for all the family to treasure and share.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was first published by Macmillan more than 150 years ago with Sir John Tenniel’s original illustrations. Lewis Carroll’s iconic story is now firmly established in the cultural fabric of countries throughout the world with curious, quick-witted Alice, its timeless heroine, at its heart. During her extraordinary adventures in Wonderland, she meets the the charming White Rabbit, the formidable Queen of Hearts, the mad Hatter and the grinning Cheshire-Cat. All of these unforgettable characters have become as famous as Alice herself and take their place alongside her in one of the most influential children’s books of all time.
Through the Looking-Glass
Chris Riddell’s brilliant full-colour illustrated Through the Looking-glass in a sumptuous hardback jacketed edition, a perfect gift for families, children and all fans of this much-loved favourite classic.
First published by Macmillan more than 150 years ago, Lewis Carroll’s iconic stories have been loved and enjoyed by generations of children the world over.
Curious Alice’s second adventure takes her through the looking-glass to a place even stranger than the Wonderland of her first adventure. Caught up in the great looking-glass chess game she sets off across the chequerboard landscape to become a queen on the final square. It isn’t as easy as she expects: at every step she is hindered by unusual, funny and nonsense characters who crop up. Some of them insist on reciting poems to her and these poems, such as ‘The Walrus and The Carpenter’ and ‘Jabberwocky’, are now as famous as the Alice stories themselves.
This edition presents Lewis Carroll’s complete text, with illustrations from Costa Award- and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner Chris Riddell. Published 200 years after the birth of Alice’s first illustrator, Sir John Tenniel, also the political cartoonist of his time, Chris Riddell’s illustrations set a new bar in terms of excellence with his unique, rich and evocative interpretation of Carroll’s world.
