Illustrated by Joe McLaren

Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Joe McLaren.

Published by Whites Books (Pocket Editions), 2010, hardcover book, embossed and with a black ribbon bookmark. First edition.

ISBN-13: 978-0956266828

Lovely little book, with wonderful illustrations, but it’s a shame that the band is glued to the inside front cover- I don’t want to remove it and damage the book, so I can’t scan in the whole cover…

Joe McLaren says on his website:

I was born in 1981, I live in Kent, I’m married, and I work as a freelance illustrator.

I graduated in 2003 from Brighton University (BA Hons Illustration First Class) and won a prize (University of Nagoya student show award~ first place).

I do lots of work for newspapers and magazines (most notably the Times and WIRED), and illustrate lots of book covers.

Available from Amazon: Alice in Wonderland (Pocket Classics)

Peter Weevers

Alices’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Peter Weevers. Published by Ted Smart, 1996. First published 1989 by Random House.

ISBN: 0091850770

4to. Hardback with dustjacket.

The original story, illustrated by France-based, UK-born watercolour artist Peter Weevers

I think this book suffers a bit from the common problem that many of the paintings are too similar to the Tenniels- it must be so hard seeing such familiar mental images in a new way. Having said that, there are an awful lot of them (100), and they’re certainly beautiful. The Alice was based on the artist’s daughter, Tilia.

You can see some of his work, including some of the Alice stuff here

Sometimes turns up on amazon: Alice in Wonderland

This one was a present- Thanks Jon!
