Alice in Wonderland. Illustrated by Ralph Steadman. Ralph Steadman, Lewis Carroll.

Alice in Wonderland. Illustrated by Ralph Steadman.

Buffalo: Firefly Books, 2003. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine dust jacket. Ralph Steadman portrays the curious girl in spirited illustrations that bring new life to Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Steadman's imaginative pen-and-ink drawings, which first appeared in a 1968 British edition, have here been restored, reformatted and updated. The White Rabbit's anxiety at his tardiness seems insurmountable in an opening portrait; the bottle labeled ""Drink Me"" unmistakably resembles a classic Coca-Cola bottle; and the artist depicts Alice outgrowing the White Rabbit's house as a wordless spread of the girl in a dark interior, with only a window as the source of light. His artwork deftly blends contemporary ideas with timeless psychological portrayals. Item #27696
