Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by Tove Jansson / ISBN 9781854379573 / 110-page hardback from Tate Publishing with color and black-and-white illustrations
Described by The Times on its first publication in 1865 as "an excellent piece of nonsense," this inspired tale of a young girl's adventures in a strange and magical world has gone on to become one of the most popular books ever written, translated into over 125 languages and said to be the most frequently quoted book after the Bible, Koran and Shakespeare.
In Tove Jansson, the story of Alice finds an illustrator worthy of its enchantment and surreal beauty. Jansson is renowned worldwide for her hugely successful Moomin books. What is less well known is that in 1966 she devoted her unique gifts to illustrating Alice's extraordinary adventures.
Over forty years after she presented Lewis Carroll's masterpiece to a Scandinavian audience, Tove Jansson's beautifully illustrated edition of the original text of this classic work is finally made available to an English-speaking audience.
