In the 1940s, Mervyn Peake was commissioned to produce a series of pen-and-ink drawings to accompany Lewis Carroll's classic works: "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass." Peake produced such luminous images that Graham Greene later referred to him as "the first great artist since Tenniel to recast Alice in a contemporary mould." With introductions by modern literary masters Will Self and Zadie Smith, this beautifully designed and illustrated book is the perfect gift for anyone, adult or child.
