“This year, that curious, hallucinating heroine Alice, friend of Cheshire cats and untimely rabbits, is turning 150 years old…And what a perfect match, in tone and whimsy, found in Rifle Paper Co.’s Anna Bond.”—Vanity Fair
“Publishers are having a creative field day with stunningly beautiful new covers—and lovely insides, too, in the case of Puffin’s whimsical Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, illustrated by Rifle Paper Co.’s Anna Bond.”—Entertainment Weekly
“Chic…The pretty face of Anna Bond’s Alice looks continually astonished, and even in the scene where her neck grows freakishly serpentine, the heroine remains comely. Elegant and unthreatening, Ms. Bond’s pictures abound with so many flowers and curling vines that Wonderland seems a much nicer place than perhaps we remembered.”—Wall Street Journal
“150 years after Alice in Wonderland was published, Anna Bond, the creative director of stationer Rifle Paper Co., draws a whole new tea party in this deluxe hardcover edition.”—New York Magazine’s The Cut
“In this beautiful, oversized, hardcover anniversary edition—with the complete, unabridged text—readers will fall in love all over again with the classic tale of the girl who fell down the rabbit hole. Illustrator Anna Bond, of gift and stationery brand Rifle Paper Co., applies her stylish, whimsical touch and distinctive color palette to Alice and her friends, from the inviting jacket and the case-cover art beneath it to the original endpapers and the superb full-color interior illustrations, large and small.” —Shelf Awareness

About the Author
Lewis Carroll, born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-98), grew up in Cheshire in the village of Daresbury, the son of a parish priest. He was a brilliant mathematician, a skilled photographer and a meticulous letter and diary writer. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, inspired by Alice Liddell, the daughter of the Dean of Christ Church in Oxford, was published in 1865, followed by Through the Looking-Glass in 1867. He wrote numerous stories and poems for children including the nonsense poem The Hunting of the Snark and fairy stories Sylvie and Bruno.

A wonderful addition to her library.
Oooooh I love this! The story itself (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) is my favourite book of all time. I hadn't read Through the Looking-Glass until purchasing this edition. That story is okay, but not as good as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The BEST thing about this book (no, it's not the adorable, textured cover or the fact that you can see it on Mindy's office bookshelf in the Mindy Project!) is that it includes bonus content! There are endnotes on many parts of the story, giving more context or interesting facts about the book! I love this aspect! I'm trying to figure out if all the hardcover penguin classics have this bonus content. It's simply wonderful. I very much enjoyed reading all the interesting tidbits. The tidbits themselves are also VERY well written. Simply wonderful.
The book also features Alice's Adventures Under Ground, an earlier version of the classic story, as well as a ribbon bookmark built into the book. If you are an Alice fan, you simply must own this book!
NOTE: Be careful if you decide to take the sticker off the back - when I did it, some of the beautiful pink paint came off with the sticker.
I was happy to have read the whole of it though. Very reasonable price on the set.
