All guests at the worldwide Langham chain of luxury hotels this year find in their rooms a “keep me” copy of Wonderland, the Penguin edition with a new pink cover bearing the Langham’s imprint, the front cover of which depicts a pretty blonde in her twenties wearing a blue dress having tea, whilst a white rabbit hops about at her feet.
The note on the back explains that this is in celebration of the fact that The Langham, London, opened its doors in 1865 (the year of Wonderland’s publication) as Europe’s first “Grand Hotel,” and invites us to embark on our “own journey of discovery and indulgence” whilst we stay with them.

I suspect based on the tone of the cover, some hotel guests might be surprised to open the book and discover the traditional Alice story and not, um, “Fifty Shades of the Jabberwock.” 🙂
Great, Alice in wonderland. It would be immense pleasure for the visitors to witness this special moment. It makes them to understand the history in deep.
