Alicia en el país de las maravillas (Ilustraciones originales)

El encargado de darle vida a los personajes de Lewis Carroll fue el también inglés John Tenniel (1820-1914). Aquí una muestra de los 42 dibujos finales que ilustraron la edición original de 1865 (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland).

Nota: Tenniel también ilustró la continuación del clásico de Carroll, A través del espejo y lo que Alicia encontró allí (1871).

  2. Felicitaciones por tu artículo. La verdad es que Alicia es un clásico que siempre se ha relegado a la categoría de literatura infantil y cuya “imagineria” ha estado dominada por la versión de disney, perdiendo su profundo sentido filosófico y artístico. Un saludo
