More Alice in Wonderland illustrations

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 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.

the trial

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.
