Description Lewis Carroll's stories based around the character of Alice have proved to be among the most enduring literary creations of all time. For almost 150 years they have led a double life, on one hand classics of children's literature and on the other endlessly fascinating source material for artists, writers, filmmakers and creatives of all kinds. For the first time, this extensively illustrated book examines the visual art that has been inspired by the Alice stories. This ranges from Lewis Carroll's original sketches and Tenniel¿s iconic illustrations to Surrealist paintings, sculpture, film, photography, comics and contemporary art. Essays by leading authorities grant fresh insights Carroll's life and work and the book includes a new fairy tale specially written by Carol Mavor. Artists featured include Fiona Banner, Peter Blake, Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Anna Gaskell, Dan Graham, Yayoi Kusama, Rene Magritte, Sally Mann, Paul Nash, Adrian Piper and Annelies. Gavin Delahunty is Head of Exhibitions and Displays at Tate Liverpool. Christoph Schulz is an independent curator.
