Was Lewis Carroll’s hand-drawn manuscript of Through the Looking-Glass destroyed, or did it just go underground for almost 150 years? Looking-Glass House: The Lost Manuscript of Through the Looking-Glass imagines the rough draft of Carroll’s 1871 sequel to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in Carroll’s own meticulous handwriting and features more than thirty pen-and-ink illustrations that look astonishingly similar to Carroll’s own charming drawings from Alice’s Adventures under Ground. See how Carroll might have imagined the chess kings and queens, the Jabberwock, and the Tweedle twins before Tenniel drew them!
Lovingly “re-“created by Daniel Rover Singer, illustrated by Jonathan David Dixon, designed by Andrew Ogus, with editorial oversight by Mark Burstein, this is a must-have! Order from Amazon here.
