In honour of Lewis Carroll’s upcoming birthday on the 27th January (which I share) here are some more 20th-century Alice illustrations.
First up: Anne and Janet Grahame Johnstone – published in 1973 by World Distributors.
I love Alice’s striped stockings.
A red-haired hatter.
A red squirrel juror.
And here is a thoroughly modern Alice: by Willy Pogány published by EP Dutton in 1929
This Alice has bobbed hair and short skirt.
Hare looks like he’s wearing a tank top under his jacket.
This version is less dreamlike than others. She looks like she really has just kicked over a jury of animals.
Finally another version from 1929 by Charles Folkard. This really looks like inspiration for the Dancing Flatware scene in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast to me.
