    Grahame Baker-Smith and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

    Today marks 150 years since the first publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865). Lewis Carroll’s timeless tale has been reprinted and retold countless times. The original edition was illustrated by John Tenniel, but in the book’s 150 history, many extraordinary illustrators have contributed to its longevity, including Arthur Rackham (1907), Mervyn Peake (1946), Ralph Steadman (1967), Salvador Dalí (1969), Max Ernst (1970), and Anthony Browne (1988).

    The Worlds of Mervyn Peake at the British Library

    Accomplished playwright, painter, poet and illustrator Mervyn Peake (1911-68) has an exhibition on now at the British Library. It started on the 5th of July, but there’s plenty of time to catch it as it ends on the 18th of September. The British Library recently acquired an archive of Peake’s work, and it’s on show. A big plus for Alice fans; his original drawings for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass can also be seen at the exhibition.
