In 1980, the author was starting his first year at the Ontario College of Art when printmaking instructor Bill Poole approached him with a crazy idea: to create ninety-six wood engravings for Poole's limited, letterpress edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. This 2011 edition celebrates Alice's adventures with wood engravings.

User Review  - jwesley - LibraryThing

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a unique pop-up for children to enjoy. However, the book seems rushed and often makes me beg for more. Yet, overall, what I've taken from this book is that our dreams will always take us on realistic adventures. Read full review

About the author (2011)

Lewis Carroll was born on the 27th of January, 1832, as Charles Lutwidge Dogson at Daresbury in Cheshire, England. Carroll is best known for his children’s books Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, which quickly became international successes and to this day inspire films, art, and research. Other famous works of his are the poems ‘The Hunting of the Snark’ and ‘Jabberwocky’. Carroll had a prodigious talent in mathematics, logics, word play and philosophy, and he spent most of his life teaching mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford. He died at the age of sixty-five on January 14th, 1898, in Surrey, England. Today there are societies around the world dedicated to the study of his life and appreciation of his writings.
