Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland: Lined Ultra Journal
Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898) (known to us as Lewis Carroll) is regarded as a foremost author of “nonsense literature,” a genre defined by its subversions of language conventions and logic. Since it was first published in 1865, the story of Alice in Wonderland has enchanted audiences of all ages. The book’s memorable cast of eccentric characters, Alice’s helter-skelter adventure itself and Carroll’s wonderful use of the English language continue to stand their literary ground.
The manuscript page that was used to create this cover design comes from a one-of-a-kind book that Carroll wrote and illustrated in his own hand. Inspired by the three children of his friend Henry Liddell, including a girl named Alice, Carroll created the whimsical tale after a summer boating trip with the family. He eventually wrote it down and presented it to Alice, complete with his own drawings as seen here.
