Read full description of the books:
The fantastical adventures of Alice, from tumbling down the rabbit-hole through her encounters with the Mad Hatter, the Cheshire Cat, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and other unforgettable characters, are probably the most enduring stories ever written, loved by adults and children alike.
Lewis Carroll's classic books are illustrated here by Mervyn Peake, author of the famed Gormenghast trilogy, who brilliantly captures Carroll's dreamlike combination of impossible events, precise detail, and weird logic. Peake's pen-and-ink drawings, commissioned in the 1940s, have been restored to their former clarity.
Bringing together Carroll's timeless masterpieces and Peake's extraordinary drawings, with introductions by Will Self and Zadie Smith, this edition captures the playful, satirical and mysterious essence of Carroll's Alice stories.

Read information about the authorThe Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.
His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.
He also has works published under his real name.
