Book Overview

This is a pack of three of the same print. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was first published in 1865 by Macmillan & Co. In January 1864 Lewis Carroll met with the illustrator John Tenniel, and in Tenniel's hands, the characters of Wonderland came to life. Printing Tenniel's images in the first edition of the book involved careful preparation the drawings were carved into woodblocks by wood engravers, and the blocks were used to create metal 'electrotypes' that would be used on the printing press. This fine art print has been made using traditional methods of reproduction and printing. In 2014 Macmillan created a new set of reproductions from the original woodblocks, now held in the British Library. The printing has been done on a traditional 4-color proofing press, printing directly onto art-quality paper."
