Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Macmillan Classics)
One of the most exciting and original books in world literature, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is a tale of childhood whimsy that can enthrall anyone with a curiosity to follow Alice down the rabbit-hole. This limited edition is distinguished by Iassen Ghiuselev's extraordinary illustrations, which the artist has innovatively worked into one painting that tells the entire adventure. The resulting dreamscape takes viewers into perspective distortions that defy logic and invite them to journey through time and space like Alice herself. A tour de force of innovative book illustration and design -- and embellished with exquisite calligraphy -- this edition of a classic is an essential addition to every "Alice in Wonderland" collection.
