Sir John Tenniel was already a renowned cartoonist when he was invited to produce illustrations for Alice. His exquisite engravings are among the most iconic and best loved images in the world.His illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass are considered to be his finest and most enduring achievement. They must also rank among the world's best-known children's images.mThe Dalziel brothers were commissioned to engrave the boxwood blocks on which Tenniel had made his drawings. The engravers advised Lewis Carroll that the engraved blocks should not be used for printing the illustrations in the books but instead they would act as the masters from which electrotype copies would be made. It was from these electrotypes that all the illustrations in the Alice books were printed with a resultant loss of definition. In 1985 the original wood engraved blocks were discovered in deed boxes belonging to Macmillan, the original publishers. Jonathan Stephenson at the Rocket Press was awarded the prestigious job of printing 250 sets from the blocks (the first time that they had been used) for worldwide distribution.

Tenniel’s illustrations are brought into bright focus, and this is both the perfect introduction to the classic, and a lovely little object in itself. ~ Andrea Reece

These are stories that every child will enjoy getting to know because, as Philip Pullman says, “ They are as fresh and clever and funny today as they were a hundred and fifty years ago.” ~ Julia Eccleshare

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, was first published in 1865 by Macmillan & Co. In January 1864 Carroll met with the illustrator John Tenniel, and in Tenniel's hands, the characters of Wonderland came to life. Printing Tenniel's images in the first edition of the book involved careful preparation - the drawings were carved into woodblocks by wood engravers, and the blocks were used to create metal 'electrotypes' that would be used on the printing press. This fine art print shows one of the most iconic characters, the White Rabbit. In 2014 Macmillan created a new set of reproductions from the original woodblocks, now held in the British Library. The printing has been done on a traditional 4-colour proofing press, printing directly onto art-quality paper to create a beautiful image to keep forever.
