Subtitled: A Philatelic Phantasy (with a Little Assistance from Lewis Carroll and Sir John Tenniel).
Published by Whizzard Press/ Andre Deutsch 1978. First edition hardback with dustjacket.
Designed to resemble a stamp album with details of the author’s own fantasy stamps, first day covers and postmarks, all based on the Alice stories: King was frustrated in 1965 by the Post Office’s refusal to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, so he created some of his own Wonderland stamps and stationery. This book brings the stamps together with other post-y bits and bobs.
The Times apparently described the book thus:
…the most brilliant and effective diversion on the Alice theme… Only a great lover of Alice, a fine artist, a considerable wit and an expert philatelist could have produced this fantastic tour de force.
