Alice Through the Looking Glass

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Following on from his incredible illustrations from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland Steadman illustrated the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass in the early 1970's. He embraced the chess board throughout the black and white illustrations creating a dramatic and stark world for Alice to work her way through. It became an instant classic.

Once again transposing modern stereotypes into the fantastical world, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum become nonsensical bankers and the White Knight has the face of Lewis Carroll himself. Steadman takes the reader firmly into this harsh new world of hippies and new age romantics all set against the unforgiving chess board background while producing some of his  most elegant works.
