Illustrating Alice

Alice, Copyright by Alain Gauthier

This just in from LCSNA President Mark Burstein:

A gorgeous fine press book from Artists’ Choice Editions in London makes good on its promise of “an international survey of illustrated editions,” with over 400 pictures from the works. Unlike other books on the subject that tend to only print pictures in public domain, this one is truly inclusive, and global. There are articles both historically by region and by some of the illustrators themselves (Barry Moser, Ralph Steadman, Helen Oxenbury, Jan Svankmajer, and the like). Checklists abound. In both Standard and Special editions, the latter carrying four signed giclée prints. You can order books or ask for a prospectus here.
