About the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was a man of diverse interests - in mathematics, logic, photgraphy, art, theater, religion, medicine, and science. He was happiest in the company of children for whom he created puzzles, clever games, and charming letters.

As all Carroll admirers know, his book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865), became an immediate success and has since been translated into more than eighty languages. The equally popular sequel Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, was published in 1872.

The Alice books are but one example of his wide ranging authorship. The Hunting of the Snark, a classic nonsense epic (1876) and Euclid and His Modern Rivals, a rare example of humorous work concerning mathematics, still entice and intrigue today's students. Sylvie and Bruno, published toward the end of his life contains startling ideas including an 1889 description of weightlessness.

The humor, sparkling wit and genius of this Victorian Englishman have lasted for more than a century. His books are among the most quoted works in the English language, and his influence (with that of his illustrator, Sir John Tenniel) can be seen everywhere, from the world of advertising to that of atomic physics.

The illustrations in this copy are wonderful!

In regards to the story itself, I was so impressed with how cleaver and imaginative Carroll is.

I actually purchased two copies; one for myself and one for my 5 year-old granddaughter.

While the tale is the same as all other volumes of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, the illustrations by Yayoi Kusama make it unusual and more beautiful than can be imagined. I actually purchased two copies; one for myself and one for my 5 year-old granddaughter. These illustrations are complete works of art, in themselves, by a very talented, creative, imaginative and, sadly, aged Japanese artist. This book will be cherished for generations to come.

I already owned this book, along with Through the Looking Glass, but I just had to get this wonderful edition after seeing the YouTube trailer for the book: (...). Go ahead and watch it. I'll wait :-)

Awesome, right!? I'm a complete sucker for nice clothbound books, and I love contemporary art, so getting this really was a no-brainer.

The illustrations are amazing and they compliment the story perfectly, transporting adults into an imaginary world that's rarely available to those over two feet tall. For a story that's been visually adapted time and again by Western illustrators and filmmakers, it's refreshing to have a completely re-imagined view of Alice's adventures by this wonderful Japanese artist. In fact, the one problem I had while reading the book was trying to forget the movie adaptations I'd seen (particularly the Disney one) and instead allow myself to imagine it with fresh eyes. It took a little while, but I love the new vision that Kusama took me on through that timeless rabbit hole.

In regards to the story itself, I was so impressed with how cleaver and imaginative Carroll is. None of the movies really do the story justice. I'm pretty sure that Carroll must have at least been an amateur linguist because of all the ways he plays with the language. Actually, thanks to my former life as a linguistics major, I got so much more out of reading this than I probably would have otherwise. While this is undoubtedly a children's book, this is a story for all ages.

Whether you're a kid or an adult, this is a fantastic edition of a classic story. Rarely does a book make me laugh out loud, but Alice's adventure in Wonderland did just that - page after page. I can't wait to share this with my (as of now, nonexistent) kids someday!

I collect Alice in Wonderland stuff, esp. unique versions of the book, so this is perfect. Don't know if kids will be into it bc the illustrations aren't that exciting, but if you love Alice stuff or like art books or this artist, it's a great book.

Bought as a collector item with all the recent hype between the 2012 collaboration with Loius Vuitton and Kusama - much cheaper than a purse!
Illustrations are bright and colorful and the cloth-like book cover is really attractive.

I have several different copies by different illustrators so I thought this would be a fun contemporary version. And it is. It is a nice hard back book with fun vibrant color illusrtrations.

I purchased this for my daughter who had already read the book in its traditional format. The artwork is unique, and allowed my daughter to enjoy the story all over again.
