From the back cover:

Lewis Carroll’s stories based around the character of Alice have proved to be among the most enduring literary creations of all time. For almost 150 years they have led a double life, on one hand classics of children’s literature and on the other endlessly fascinating source material for artists, writers, filmmakers and creatives of all kinds.

For the first time, this extensively illustrated book examines the visual art that has been inspired by the Alice stories. Beginning with Lewis Carroll’s original sketches and Tenniel’s iconic illustrations it then explores the appearance of the books extraordinary characters in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, printmaking, film animation and video. Essays by Gillian Beer, Alberto Manguel, Christoph Schulz and Edward Wakeling grant fresh insights Carroll’s life and work together with a new fairy tale specially written by Carol Mavor.

Artists featured include Fiona Banner, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Anna Gaskell, Dan Graham, Paul Nash, Yayoi Kusama, Robert Smithson, Annelies Strba, Diana Thater and Luc Tuymans.

Gavin Delahunty is Head of Exhibitions and Displays at Tate Liverpool. Christoph Schulz is an independent curator.
