“and what is the use of a book,”
thought Alice, “without pictures or conversations?”

With the advent of Glasnost, in the late 80s, there was a resurgence of illustrated editions of Lewis Carroll’s Alice books. We are happy to publish the first English language edition of a survey of the vast array published from Azerbaijan to Vladivostok, most of which have never been seen in the West before.

The book is 176 pages with 170 b/w and colour illustrations. It includes a Checklist of more than sixty illustrated books. There are two editions, both numbered and bound in a Continental style binding. The Standard of 160 copies is £96.00.


The Special Edition of 48 copies includes a folder with four original signed and numbered Aqua-tints by internationally known Ukrainian printmakers, a copy of the book 1/4 bound in leather, all in a solander box. The Aquatints are printed on 320 gsm German Zerkall paper, 310 × 210, and are illustrated below. £540.00

Since 1907, when the copyright for Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland expired, there has been a plethora of illustrated editions. This book explores mainly contemporary versions published throughout the world with particular emphasis on the way that Alice is depicted in different countries. These ideas and examples are discussed by experts from Brazil, China, England, Italy, Japan, Poland, Russia, the United States and Canada.

The book is casebound with a dust wrapper and has 204 pages with hundreds of illustrations. There is a Checklist of all English language editions.

There are two editions, both numbered. The Standard Edition is limited to 500 copies £86.00.

The Special Edition of 68 copies contains four signed and numbered giclee prints by four international artists including Jan Svanmajer who has also written a chapter about his Alice film. The prints are in a folder and the book, which is numbered and bound quarter leather, are all contained in a slipcase. £340.00
