Illustrated by Tony Ross

Through the Looking Glass (Abridged), illustrated and abridged by Tony Ross.

Published by Red Fox/ Random house, 1994. Paperback.

He has done a version of Wonderland as well, but I’m yet to get my hands on that…

Ross has worked as a cartoonist, graphic designer, lecturer and art director of an advertising agency.

As well as the Alices, Ross has illustrated books for Roald Dahl, Paula Danziger and Michael Palin. He also writes and illustrates his own books.

The pictures do remind me rather of Quentin Blake. Has he done an Alice?

I bought this in the second hand bookshop in Southwold, Suffolk. You can get it on Amazon: Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There

Illustrated by David Walsh and John Cooper

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, illustrated by David Walsh and John Cooper.

Published by Ward & Lock: “A Prince Charming Colour Book”. 1962. Hardback 8vo with dust jacket.

It has 18 colour plates and black-and-white illustrations set in the text. I think Walsh did the b&w, and Cooper the colour pictures, which are dark and rather eerie: quite different to the cover picture. I’ll try and scan some of the inside pages once I’ve caught up with myself a bit more…

Bought in the Yoxford Antique Centre for £4, according to the receipt tucked inside. I suspect that this means that mum bought it for me.

Illustrated by J. Morton Sale

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass illustrated by J. Morton Sale.

Published by William Clowes and Sons, London 1933?- undated copy. 8vo.
Yellow clothbound with decorative front board. Colour frontispiece and line drawings throughout.

John Morton Sale was  an artist and illustrator, and with his wife, Isobel, co-founded the Parnassus Gallery, well-known in their time for high-quality reproductions of works of art.

From what I can find on-line, he was mainly known for illustrating the dust jackets of detective novels. Any more information gratefully received.

Paperback version available on Amazon: Alice’S Adventures In Wonderland And Through The Looking Glass

I think this one came from mum… I do seem to have ended up with two copies of this one though, so goodness knows where the other came from…

Illustrated by Arthur Rackham

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

This edition published by SeaStar in 2002. Hardback with dustjacket.

ISBN: 158717152X

From the Product Description:

This lavish edition illustrated by Arthur Rackham – one of the most popular artists of the 20th century – is a sumptuous celebration of this beloved tale. In its dreamlike paintings, filled with elegant, subtle details, Rackham’s imagery captures all of the topsy-turvy magic, pointed wit and absurd mischief that confront Alice at every turn. Now, for the first time in years, Rackham’s Alice is once again available, in a deluxe format comparable to its original 1907 publication. This beautiful facsimile, containing the complete set of 13 full-colour plates and 14 black-and-white drawings, is the perfect invitation to a trip down the rabbit hole and into the enchanted, upside-down world of Alice’s Wonderland.
