Illustrated Wonderlands: The Beauty of Books
Fiction books have enabled new ideas to reach eager audiences across the globe. Illustrated Wonderlands shows us that they are not simply conveyors of story, knowledge and belief. Some of the most important books in the world are also stunningly beautiful, iconic masterpieces in their own right. First published in 1865, Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll was one of the most remarkable books of the period, a combination of the genius of Carroll's nonsense verse and prose and the meticulously detailed illustrations of John Tenniel.
