About the Author

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll, was an English mathematician, photographer, and prolific writer, especially known for his beloved books Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Preferring the company of children to adults, his Alice books were inspired by his friendship with the young Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, where Carroll was a mathematics instructor.

Andrea D'Aquino has always resisted labels like "art director", "illustrator", "graphic designer" and finds herself happiest straddling the line between all those things. She has worked as a senior art director for major advertising agencies.

As an illustrator and designer, clients include Anthropologie, The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveller, The Washington Post, Elle Magazine, One Kings Lane, Vegetarian Times, Family Fun, Chronicle Books, Uppercase, Flow Magazine, PlanSponsor Magazine, and many others.

Her work has been recognized by Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Art Director's Club, Communication Arts, 3x3 Magazine, The One Club, and The Type Director's Club.

I'm a huge fan of Alice's adventures in wonderland. I think it is one of the greatest children's classics ever written. But, of course, it's for adults, too. When I found this version, so creatively and stunningly illustrated, I was thrilled. D'Aquino's illustrations really do justice to the story. The book is a handsome one, lovingly produced and a joy to hold.

It's rare that an updated classic actually improves on the original, but the whimsical illustration by Andrea D'Aquino, combined with creative but not-overdone typography, had me enjoying this masterpiece through fresh eyes. The presentation, including the type along the page edges, make this a book worthy of coffee table display, yet feels 100% true to the essence of the story. Great for adults and children alike.
