Lewis Carroll (1832-1898) was an English author and mathematician. ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND was first published in 1865 and has since become one of the most beloved and well-known classics of all time.
Rodney Matthews began drawing at a very young age and went on to study commercial design. After serving an apprenticeship in advertising, he became a freelance designer and illustrator. Since that time, he has become an internationally acclaimed artist with a unique and instantly recognizable style.
An interplanetary landscape serves as the backdrop to Alice's journey in this fantastical rendition, which fits into a sturdy slipcase. Alice—whose long blonde hair is streaked with gray and facial features seem almost haunted—encounters a cast of familiar characters who, in Matthews's hands, have exaggerated, alien qualities: an especially bestial March Hare and a goblinlike Mad Hatter appear at the tea party, as a living tree looks on. In addition to surreal and vibrant full-spread scenes, b&w spot art often appears beside Carroll's text. Matthews's original and psychedelic conception befits the story's unworldly essence. All ages.
