Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – Illustrated by Millicent Sowerby

‘Alice in Wonderland’ is the best known work of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name, ‘Lewis Carroll’. Telling the tale of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by surreal and anthropomorphic creatures, the book was a huge commercial success on its initial publication. It was followed by its sequel, ‘Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There’. The books play at the heart of logical problems and literary nonsense – giving the narrative lasting popularity with adults and children alike. This classic story is accompanied by the beautiful and delicate illustrations of Millicent Sowerby, a prolific and extremely talented illustrator of The Golden Age of Illustration. Millicent Sowerby was the daughter of famous designer and illustrator John G. Sowerby.
