Product description

The force of social satire and fantasy in the original text of "Alice in Wonderland" is as relevant today as when the novel was first published in 1865. This version of Carroll's classic tale is a startling departure from the traditional Victorian approach. In his introduction, Ralph Steadman describes how a fresh illustrative perspective created an original, modern vision. The irony and satire of "Alice in Wonderland" acquires new life with Steadman's audacious and dynamic illustrations. The 47 pen and ink illustrations from the critically acclaimed 1968 edition are faithfully restored and reformatted. The energy, imagination and power of Steadman's pen introduces the wit and wisdom of Alice to a new generation of readers. Lewis Carroll is the pseudonym of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, 1832-1898. "Alice in Wonderland" was first published in 1865. Ralph Steadman's illustrations have appeared in newspapers, magazines and dozens of books, including Hunter S. Thompson's, "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas".
