Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Lewis Carroll. Simply Read, $29.95 (116pp) ISBN 978-1-894965-00-2
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland gets another makeover in a new edition illustrated by Iassen Ghiuselev. Beginning with a gouache painting that combines elements from the entire story into one fantastical scene, Ghiuselev's illustrations continue by alternating seemingly gilded paintings of Alice interacting realistically with Mouse and Duck and Dodo, and burgundy-hued pencil drawings, all of which emphasize the dreamlike qualities of the text. This large-trim (9"" x 13""), limited edition includes a bookmark.
