Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Iassen Ghiuselev

11665515_10153375189375446_7806449027337201172_nIn celebration of 150 years of the much loved classic ‘Alice in Wonderland‘, we have unearthed another sumptuous production by Simply Read Books, thanks to Sara O’Leary.

We have our own small collection of various iterations of ‘Alice’ and it’s impossible to choose a favourite, particularly as they’re all executed so very differently.

Each with glorious new and sometimes unexpected details, they all capture their own unique take on ‘Alice’ and this limited edition by Iassen Ghiuselev has this in abundance.

The magical images accompany the classic words to perfection and capture the essence of ‘Alice’ to a tee.

With the additional embellishment of exquisite calligraphy, this pictoral iteration is a must-have for any collection.
