A few posts back, I mentioned the Sir John Tenniel 110th Anniversary ‘Nursery Alice’ Collection. While I’ve always admired these illustrations, some of the more modern interpretations are equally engaging and breathe new life into Alice and her friends. Mervyn Peake, Franciszka Themerson, and Nicholas Perry produced new editions of Alice in recent years, and Alan White looks at each in detail in Parenthesis 8. Well worth a good look. Back issues of this number are still available. A subscription to Parenthesis comes free with membership in the FPBA.
