Illustrated by Iassen Ghiuselev

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland illustrated by Iassen Ghiuselev.

Published by Simply Read Books, 2003. Hardback first edition with dustjacket.

ISBN: 1894965000

From Ghiuselev’s website:

Iassen Ghiuselev is one of the most notable illustrators of our days.

His art is characterised by its brilliant technique, inspired by the Renaissance, the good schools of realism of the 19th century, from the pre-Rafaelites to the Succession. At the same time, his works are modern in their conception of design and point of view, in a game between light and dark. The characteristic play on perpective calls to mind the art of Escher.

The list of books that he has illustrated include titles like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, The Queen of Spades by Alexander Pushkin, Don Quixote by Cervantes, Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens; fairytales by the Brothers Grimm, Oscar Wilde and John Ruskin; myths like Arthur and Excalibur and Orpheus and Eurydice; stories about the lives of personalities like Socrates or Michelangelo; tarot cards and more.

They are lovely drawings, and I also like the bookmark shaped as a ‘Read Me’ label.

Amazon: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

I hope my friend Anna won’t mind me saying that the cover always reminds me of her…

    I love the illustrations! Funny thing is that Iassen Ghiuselev is so famous abroad, and yet not popular at home in Bulgaria at all! He only became popular now that this edition has been translated into Bulgarian.
    Take a look at my article about his illustrations as well as about my visit to Christ Church in Oxford (where Lewis Carroll met with Alice Liddell) here: http://zikata.wordpress.com/2011/03/20/read-me-iassen-ghiuselev-illustrations-of-alice-in-wonderland/

I love going through the 'suggested friends' bit on Facebook- especially when it links two people you know completely independently from each other in an 'x degrees of separation' sort of a way.
