High-quality reproductions of Tenniel's colored Alice illustrations

White Rabbit Press is taking orders for a luscious set of prints reproducing the Tenniel illustrations from "The Nursery Alice," signed by one of Lewis Carroll's descendants and one of Alice's, too (as well as a noted Alice scholar).

“The Nursery Alice”, originally published in 1890, was the only edition of “Alice” that Sir John Tenniel ever coloured, with twenty illustrations drawn from “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”, combined with a new text, adapted by Lewis Carroll for young children.

White Rabbit Press is proud to announce the finest colour reproductions ever made of Tenniel's “Alice”, with this exquisite, museum-quality Limited Edition of 500 prints of Sir John Tenniel's renowned 20 colour illustrations, including cover art by Emily Gertrude Thomson.

  1. Oh.


    Not cheap, but not unreasonable for what they are… I don’t think I can stretch my budget to the whole set (especially when one can buy originals by reasonably well known current artists for that price or less), but it’s tempting to pick up one or two of my favorites.

    “You must be,” said the Cat. “Or you wouldn’t have come here.”

  2. Sure are a lot of copyright symbols on that page for a work that is tremendously in the public domain.

    Absolutely beautiful though.

  3. WOW! I can imagine the price of this limited edition skyrocketing in a couple of Harajuku stores I love…

  4. Lewis Carroll has no descendents, having never had children of his own. The signatory in question is actually a descendent of one of his many siblings.

  5. #6: Yeah, but that’s good enough for sentimental value and limited-edition status. At least until some time traveller goes back and gets the original signatures.

    #2: The original art is presumably out of copyright. That doesn’t necessarily mean photos of it are out of copyright, or that new engravings derived from it are out of copyright… or that there aren’t copyrights on the new page layouts of art combined with text. “Straining at gnats and swallowing camels is a first-year law course.”
