"This year, that curious, hallucinating heroine Alice, friend of Cheshire cats and untimely rabbits, is turning 150 years old...And what a perfect match, in tone and whimsy, found in Rifle Paper Co.'s Anna Bond."-- Vanity Fair

"Publishers are having a creative field day with stunningly beautiful new covers--and lovely insides, too, in the case of Puffin's whimsical Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, illustrated by Rifle Paper Co.'s Anna Bond."-- Entertainment Weekly

" Chic...The pretty face of Anna Bond's Alice looks continually astonished, and even in the scene where her neck grows freakishly serpentine, the heroine remains comely. Elegant and unthreatening, Ms. Bond's pictures abound with so many flowers and curling vines that Wonderland seems a much nicer place than perhaps we remembered."-- Wall Street Journal

"150 years after Alice in Wonderland was published, Anna Bond, the creative director of stationer Rifle Paper Co., draws a whole new tea party in this deluxe hardcover edition."-- New York Magazine's The Cut

"In this beautiful, oversized, hardcover anniversary edition--with the complete, unabridged text-- readers will fall in love all over again with the classic tale of the girl who fell down the rabbit hole. Illustrator Anna Bond, of gift and stationery brand Rifle Paper Co., applies her stylish, whimsical touch and distinctive color palette to Alice and her friends, from the inviting jacket and the case-cover art beneath it to the original endpapers and the superb full-color interior illustrations, large and small." -- Shelf Awareness

Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson on January 27, 1832, was a distinguished British author, mathematician, and photographer renowned for his contribution to the genre of literary nonsense. Best known for his world-famous works "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass," Carroll demonstrated an intricate hand at creating enthralling narratives entrenched in the recesses of imagination and logical paradoxes. A master of wordplay and symbolism, his fantastical oeuvre transcended the confines of children's literature, adorning the realm of popular culture with enduring legacy. Raised within a nurturing environment that fostered his innate creativity, Carroll also led a parallel career as a Mathematics Lecturer at Christ Church, Oxford. Throughout his life, his profound fascination with mathematical concepts and logical reasoning was notable, informing his distinctive style in literature. Like his stories, Carroll himself was a fascinating blend of a pragmatic logical mind and a fantasy-driven dreamer, illuminating the interplay between reality and imagination. Despite his death on January 14, 1898, Carroll's influence continues to be felt in various mediums ranging from literature and film to pop culture and philosophy centuries later – a testament to his timeless appeal. He left behind a rich tapestry of intricate puzzle-ridden novels, idyllic poetry, and mesmerizingly paradoxical short stories, offering readers a window into his extraordinary mind while forever changing the landscape of whimsical fiction. Lewis Carroll's life and body of work offer a compelling example of the transformative power of creativity, intellect, and imagination.
