Illustrated by Willy Pogany

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Willy Pogany.

Published by Dover (26 Jun 2009)

ISBN-10: 0486470482

ISBN-13: 978-0486470481

Modern paperback reproduction of the book published by E.P.Dutton and Co in 1929. Black and white pictures only.

William Andrew (“Willy”) Pogany was born Vilmos Andreas Pogány in 1882 in Szeged, Hungary. After studying in Budapest, Munich and Paris he spent time in London before going to the States. He remained there until his death on 30 July 1955.

As well as work as an illustrator for books and advertisements, he was art director for several Hollywood films.

From the back cover:

Generations of children have fallen down the rabbit hole with the little girl in the pinafore, to return again and again to Wonderland. Translated into more than one hundred languages, this captivating fantasy has enchanted readers of all ages around the world. This new edition of Alice’s adventures offers a fresh look at the time-honored tale, featuring an abundance of exuberant illustrations in the elegant style of Art Nouveau.
Willy Pogány, a prolific Hungarian-born artist best known for his illustrations of classic myths and legends, created these striking drawings in 1929. Pogány’s intricate black-and-white images retain the story’s playful spirit while injecting a zesty modern air to depictions of the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, and other fantastical characters. This restoration of Pogány’s long out-of-print illustrations offers a fine introduction to a classic tale, as well as splendid addition to the collections of those already acquainted with Alice’s adventures.

Alice in Wonderland Paper Dolls

Alice in Wonderland Paper Dolls: Through an All New Looking Glass by Charlotte Whatley.

Published by Dover, 2010. Paperback, first edition.

ISBN-10: 0486479587

From the back cover:

Prepare to fall down the rabbit hole and plunge through the looking glass again — Alice is getting edgy with this modern paper-doll interpretation. Replete with stunningly original costumes and accessories, these 16 dolls crackle with steampunk style, a creative combination of science fiction, fantasy, and Victorian-and Edwardian-era fashions. This vibrant re-imagining will appeal to paper-doll enthusiasts of all ages.

Seems a bit of a swizz that you have to cut the dolls out yourself- I’m sure when I was a kid, they were all pre-cut and you just had to press them out before you lost all the bits…
