Summary:
This book explores the global impact of Alice in Wonderland across art, design and performance from the nineteenth century to today. It shows how Alice has been re-imagined and reinterpreted by each new generation: from the original illustrations by John Tenniel to artwork by Peter Blake and Salvador Dali, and from the 1951 Disney movie to Tim Burton's latest interpretation. This beautiful, playful publication also includes specially commissioned interactive illustrations by award-winning artist Kristjana S. Williams, as well as insights from an array of cultural stars - from Stephen Fry to Tim Walker, Ralph Steadman to Heston Blumenthal - into the profound influence of Alice on their life and work -- Source other than Library of Congress
