Picture Book Thursday (14)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll.  Illustrations. Sir John Tenniel.

I know that this book isn't exactly a picture book, but these illustrations are so amazing and so famous that I just had to include it.  Tenniel's drawing of the White Rabbit, Cheshire Cat, even Alice herself is firmly ingrained in our memories.  It also adds depth to the characters as you can visually see them as you read the Gold and Silver volumes of each book. (ed. note: I'm not including Through the Looking Glass, but I'm bundling them together.)

The fanciful art is breathtaking and seeing it either colored in (which was done in 1911) or in its original black and white form, still brings fresh memories to the surface.  I'm not a big fan of the Disney version of this--either in book form or movie.  But I know I can always go back to Lewis Carroll's bizarre ways, Tenniel's brilliant woodcuts and remember exactly why I love Alice's Adventures in Wonderland so much.
