The Lovereading4Kids comment
The story is timeless and can be read at so many different levels, but this lavish slipcased edition is quite simply stunning and will bring to the reader a very different Wonderland - even more fantastical and a little darker too. The influence for the illustrative work was Walt Disney's 1951 animated film, a film that has left an indelible mark on Matthews. It's a visual feast and a book that can be read by people of all ages; for children it’s a wonderful underworld fantasy that will develop a passion for reading, imaginative writing and for everyone else there’s innuendo, puzzling situations that require deciphering, political machinations and bucket loads of surrealism. Plenty of food for thought and a real antidote to the modern world.
A message from John Cleese:
'Michaelangelo, Manet, Monet, Matisse, Munch, Modrian and Matthews. All my favourite artists begin with an 'M'. And so, Rodney Matthews is generally acknowledged to be among the greatest artists that have ever lived. Need I say more? Please buy this book, and all his other works, because then my immense collection of stuff will become even more valuable. Especially when he dies.'
A message from the Author:
'I feel privileged to be asked to illustrate what must be one of the most original and well known stories ever written. I can't compete with Rackham, still (in my view) the best Alice illustrator ever, or meet him head-on, but I've tried to suggest a wider visual arena for the story including a space scene and the Palace of Hearts (not mentioned by Carroll). I also move between macro and telephoto, as one would do in the best of dreams! My approach is almost as if Lewis Carroll were writing today - I would jump at the chance of illustrating him.'
