10502064_10153349023750446_3688794700960237960_nThere have been many iterations over the years of the phenomenon that is ‘Alice‘, but none more so sumptuous or as decadent as this.

This new treasury from Macmillan, the original publishers of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ (1865), celebrates an incredible 150 years since the eponymous book was first published.

A die cut cover, embossed with delicate foiled leaves and regal red foiled pages, this would make a perfect and unique gift for any Alice fan, whatever their age.

Featuring exclusive unseen material from the Macmillan archives, a rarely seen episode ‘The Wasp in a Wig’ and a foreword by Philip Pullman, this is bound to be a highly sought after edition.
