Illustrated by Franciszka Themerson

IMG_0406Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There: by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by Franciszka Themerson.

Published by Inky Parrot Press (2001).

Hard back with black boards decorated with white illustrations by Themerson.

With a forward by Jasia Reichardt, and afterword by (the now rather disgraced- found guilty of six charges of indecency with a child and one charge of indecent assault against a child) Graham Ovenden.

Themerson was commissioned in 1946 (not long before copyright was up) by Harrap to illustrate Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. Even though the blocks had been made, Harrap decided not to go ahead with publication- possibly as with the loss of copyright, the market may have been flooded with new versions, but Inky Parrot rescued and published the rather fabulous illustrations in 2001.

Published in an edition of 372 Standard copies, casebound, signed and 48 Special copies, bound in quarter leather with 6 initialled prints in a folder, but mine is a proof copy with a dedication from  Ovenden.

Anna Gaskell

Anna Gaskell- photographs by Anna Gaskell, text by Thom Jones and Nancy Spector.

Published by powerHouse Books, 2001. First edition hardback.

ISBN: 1576870693

Two of Gaskell’s photographic series (Wonder and Override) are based on a loose re-interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Both included in this book.

From the publisher:

Anna Gaskell’s first monograph showcases the artist’s famed photographic series and rarely seen drawings. Through such diverse references as Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and 1970s horror films All About Eve and Carrie, Gaskell plumbs the strangeness of growing up female in a haunting and provocative style of photography.

Anna Gaskell was born in Iowa in 1969. She studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she received a B.F.A. in 1992. She received an M.F.A. from Yale University in 1995.
