Those of you who have been here a while know that my favourite book is Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. Quite a few people on the 'Weird Things...' Facebook page were asking to see photos of my Alice collection. So here are some of them, below.
Through the Looking Glass - illustrated by John Tenniel. A Puffin Story Book. 1954
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass - illustrated by John Tenniel. Puffin 1968.
A couple of later Penguin editions
Alice's Adventures Underground, a facsimile of the 1864 manuscript with illustrations by Carroll himself.
The Yayoi Kusama illustrated edition from 2012
The Tove Jansson illustrated edition.
An Arthur Rackham
A 1949 1st of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass illustrated by Leonard Weisgard
A 1921 John Tenniel edition published by Macmillan.
& I have a few others, which are back up north (I really should move all my books out of my mum's attic...) including the Ralph Steadman edition, a Mervyn Peake and the lovely Helen Oxenbury edition of Alice.
