Illustrated by Peter Blake

Alice Through the Looking Glass illustrated by Sir Peter Blake.

Signed and numbered limited edition of 500 copies: this is number 406/500.

Published by D3, 2004.

Peter Blake is one of the leading figures of British pop art, and is probably best known for designing the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover for the Beatles.

Blake was originally commissioned to illustrate the Alice books back in 1969, but the cost of producing the books was considered too high, so the eight watercolours were issued as limited edition screen prints in 1970. Years later, this limited edition was produced, including all eight.

There are also photos taken by Blake of the models he used: both human and of the landscape, with explanations of how the pictures were made.

This was my most expensive purchase, although I paid considerably less (in Marchpane, Cecil Court) than the current amazon price: Alice: Through the Looking Glass: And What Alice Found There

You can get an unsigned, non-limited version for rather less: Alice: Through the Looking-Glass: And What Alice Found There
