Illustrated By Barry Moser

Alice Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll.

Designed and Illustrated By Barry Moser.

Published by Pennyroyal, University of California Press, 1983.

First edition hardback with dustjacket.

ISBN: 0-520-053098

Barry Moser (born 1940) is an American illustrator, printer, painter, printmaker, designer, author, essayist, and teacher. He’s been involved in over 300 books, and this Alice won the National Book Award for design and illustration in 1983 and apparently prompted the poet John Ashbery to call Moser’s work “never less than dazzling.” The pictures are truly wonderful: dark and disturbing woodcuts. And there are plenty of them.

The book also includes footnotes in rather fetching red ink, and several appendices including the Wasp in the Wig ‘lost chapter’.

Bought at the Chelsea Antiquarian Book Fair from Jean Hedger (jean.hedger@virgin.net).

Sometimes available on Amazon: Lewis Carroll’s through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There,
