Illustrated by Tove Jansson

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll.

Illustrated by Tove Jansson.

ISBN: 0440000750 or 0440000696

Published by Delacorte Press. My copy- second printing, 1978. The illustrations in colour and in black and white are copyright 1966, same as me ;)

Hardback with dustjacket.

Tove Jansson is, of course, best known for the Moomins, who are currently undergoing something of a revival. I suspect that’s partly why this book comes up quite expensive.

Jansson was born and died in Helsinki: 1914 and 2001. I’ll let you decide which date is which. She’s also illustrated the Snark, but I’ve yet to find that one.

You can see all the illustrations here. I love the use of the Lewis Chessmen as models for the King and Queen of Hearts.

Bought from Oxfam via Amazon for £40 or so. Still some copies on there: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
