Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: A Modern Victorian Art Book


Down the rabbit hole we go to play croquet with hedge-hog and flamingos as men made of cards flop about. The tales of Alice in Wonderland have permeated the world of fiction for nearly 200 years and in that time many an artist have taken pencil to paper to illustrate her world with its joys and wonders and even a little darkness. This book takes the black and white art from the 1901 edition illustrated by Peter Newell a brings it to new life with beautiful water colors that harken back to a different age to bring a new wonder to the illustrated works of this early edition of Alice in Wonderland, containing all the original illustrations and in the order they originally appeared. It looks like it is time to visit Wonderland again, this time in a whole new color.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
