About this product
- DescriptionAccording to Harold Bloom, Lewis Carroll redefined children s books: Alice is the most mature, intelligent, and reflective character, hounded by petulant, stupid, and petty grown-ups. Descendants of Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, today s children s books typically contrast the inquisitive intelligence of children with the oppressive immaturity of adults. Many artists and writers have created their own versions of this timeless story. They include countless stage adaptations, eleven Hollywood film versions, and a rock opera by Marilyn Manson. No other children s book has been accorded such creative reinvention. Inspired by the 1865 edition illustrated by Sir John Tenniel and the 1907 edition illustrated by Arthur Rackham, Maggie Taylor fuses European icography, Victorian portraiture, and early photography with Surrealism, digital techlogy, and contemporary American art to create a unique artist s book that is a work of art in itself. Accompanied by Carroll s full text, Taylor s illustrations are composited from original images, many of them nineteenth century daguerreotypes and tintypes, and re-imagined through a digital lens. A one-of-a-kind item for Lewis Carroll and Maggie Taylor collectors, this book is also perfect for anyone who wishes to relive the joy and wonder of the great masterpiece that has inspired generations of children and adults.
