Peter Weevers

Alices’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll: illustrated by Peter Weevers. Published by Ted Smart, 1996. First published 1989 by Random House.

ISBN: 0091850770

4to. Hardback with dustjacket.

The original story, illustrated by France-based, UK-born watercolour artist Peter Weevers

I think this book suffers a bit from the common problem that many of the paintings are too similar to the Tenniels- it must be so hard seeing such familiar mental images in a new way. Having said that, there are an awful lot of them (100), and they’re certainly beautiful. The Alice was based on the artist’s daughter, Tilia.

You can see some of his work, including some of the Alice stuff here

Sometimes turns up on amazon: Alice in Wonderland

This one was a present- Thanks Jon!
