First edition hardback with dustjacket.
Barry Moser (born 1940) is an American illustrator, printer, painter, printmaker, designer, author, essayist, and teacher. He’s been involved in over 300 books, and this Alice won the National Book Award for design and illustration in 1983 and apparently prompted the poet John Ashbery to call Moser’s work “never less than dazzling.” The pictures are truly wonderful: dark and disturbing woodcuts. And there are plenty of them.
The book also includes footnotes in rather fetching red ink, and several appendices including the Wasp in the Wig ‘lost chapter’.
