Lewis Carroll’s stories based around the character of Alice have proved to be among the most enduring literary creations of all time.

This ranges from Lewis Carroll’s original sketches and Tenniel¿s iconic illustrations to Surrealist paintings, sculpture, film, photography, comics and contemporary art. Essays by leading authorities grant fresh insights Carroll’s life and work and the book includes a new fairy tale specially written by Carol Mavor.
