Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (150 Year Anniversary Edition) Reviews
SHAME ON AMAZON! Once again they have put reviews of a variety of Alice editions together without any regard to the volume in question. This is not a pop-up, not a coloring book, does not lack illustrations, is not small, and is not specifically intended for young children. This is an annotated edition meant to inform and entertain older readers with a variety of illustrations including the black and white originals. For those who wish to know the tale behind the jokes and puzzles a must. Other readers may wish a more streamlined edition or a modern 'retelling' with colored illustrations by contemporary artists. I'm sure they'll find a review for all versions in this hodgepodge.
We ordered the Alice in Wonderland with the green leather cover. I thought it was difficult to tell which reviews went with which versions. I'm really glad we grabbed this version, the cover (despite the ugly green color) is quite beautiful with embossed lettering and shiny red roses and border. The edge of the pages are golden, there is a red ribbon for marking your page. All of the original artwork is presented, and the page layouts are perfect. The front and back cover have a vivid full color painting of the tea party. If you are looking for a high quality version of the book, I couldn't recommend this one more. The size is medium. It is half way between the size of a paperback and a hard cover text book.
This is incredible! Absolutely beautiful.. Extended my expectations!! I have seriously never seen a more beautiful book! The detail is awesome and even the story itself is from the original Lewis Carroll version. Not only is each page a beautiful pop up.. But each page has mini fold out pages with more pop up artwork. This will be a keepsake for our family. SO glad I bought this and will look at buying others!
I took a gamble on buying this edition when no one had reviewed it yet. I tried several other Kindle editions available and had found them truly appalling in terms of formatting. This however, is significantly better, featuring well structured chapter breaks and all the original illustrations, which enhance the story a lot.
Bought it in the hardcover. My girlfriend loves alive in wonderland! And has Dali paintings all around the house. When she saw they were coming out with this illustrated edition She had to have It!
I don't always like annotated editions, but I bought this one because both stories were included and it retains all of the original illustrations like the ones I remember reading as a child. Having said that, I enjoyed the illustrations by other artists included for historical context. Some of them are quite stunning, in fact. The thing I hate about annotated editions is the way the annotations create visual "clutter." Yes, that is the case here as well. I really have to force my slightly OCD-like mind to ignore that and concentrate on the text of the story. However, as a history buff, I enjoy reading the annotations from a historical perspective. It's a big book, so if you enjoy a hefty hardcover, this is the one for you.
I bought Ingpen's lavishly illustrated volumes for my son. I think they'd be most children's favourites, and the pictures match Carroll's text so well! Ingpen isn't my favourite illustrator for every story. But for Alice, he's just right. Absurd illustrations make 'Alice' even more trippy for older/daring readers. But to a sensitive young child, bizarre pictures may turn a challenging but rewarding story downright disturbing. Ingpen's understated, accurate art illuminates the text while sating and soothing the senses. Ingpen's are my favourite images because they seem most 'real'--the way a 7-year-old child would have dreamed them, the way I pictured the words when I read them to myself at that age. They're well-made books too, with thick, durable uncoated paper. You'll want to cover your dust jackets, though; the covers are quite plain.
