Illustrated by Alison Jay

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Alison Jay.

ISBN-10: 0803729405

2006, 2nd edition hardback with dustjacket.

Published by Dial Books for Young Readers: a division of Penguin Young Readers Group.

Alison Jay was born in Hertfordshire, grew up in Derbyshire and studied at the London College of Printing, where she gained a First Class Honours degree. After graduating she worked in animation before starting to get commissions in advertising and packaging. (She illustrated a range of baby products for Crabtree and Evelyn: I love their stuff.)

Her first picture book was published in 1998, and since then she has produced a wide range of books including ‘Picture This’, ‘William and the Night Train’,’The Race’, ‘ABC Alphabet’ and ‘Welcome to the Zoo’.

She works with a quick drying oil which along with a specialist varnish, gives her pictures their distinctive craquelure.

From the publisher’s blurb:

Alison Jay has long wanted to bring her own perspective to the story. Now she shows us an exhilarating Wonderland, where Alice, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, and all the rest are playfully quirky and adorably fanciful. With the complete, unabridged text and glowing full-colour illustrations on nearly every page, this lavish edition is the perfect introduction to the novel – and an elegant gift for those who are already Lewis Carroll fans.

Available on Amazon: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
