Description


"The dream-child moving through a land / Of wonders wild and new, / In friendly chat with bird or beast- / And half believe it true." L. Carroll. In this new version of Lewis Carroll's classic story of Alice's adventures, the illustrator M.C. Iglesias re-interprets the surrealistically dreamy journey fully in color and through her unique style. Some of the major features of this book are, among others: - the complete text of the story, faithful to Lewis Carroll's original version, including the different poems at the beginning and within the text - 15 unique, full-color illustrations by M.C. Iglesias, representing the main episodes of Alice's tale, which enrich the experience of reading a classic with a modern and refreshing visualization of the story - a high-quality edition: fully in color, glossy covers, and the format 8.5 x 11 inches for a better appreciation of the artwork.
