Victorian illustrator Sir John Tenniel created the 19th century vision of Alice in Wonderland. The 20th century version was established by Disney's animated motion picture.

When Steadman's Alice appeared in 1968, it received instant acclaim. Long out of print, his Alice has been regarded as a rare -- and much coveted -- treasure. This new edition is a meticulously restored version of the original British release: a brillant collaboration of two distinctive talents."@en ;
