Fascinating Book Covers - Alice in Wonderland covers

Original cover with John Tenniel's art (above)

The typography on this turn-of-the-century edition, which features one of John Tenniel’s original illustrations, is to die for. Someone, please make this a font.

This apple-cheeked Alice, in her pretty, drop-waist skirt, is one of our favorites.

Here are just 3 of the Alice in Wonderland covers. In the coming weeks I'll post others (there are so many) for your enjoyment)

 This is modern  day Alice from the recent film

Very nice. I have the complete illustrated works of Lewis Carroll in one volume. I've come to appreciate Alice more with the years than I did when I was young. And I actually loved the recent film!
