All About Alice

Despite being Lewis Carroll's most famous work, it can be difficult to completely understand the reach of the Alice Series. Alice in Wonderland alone has thousands of editions printed over the years. It has been translated into over 97 languages. Within the Cassady Collection, we have several languages, including: 

  • English

  • Japanese

  • Chinese

  • Korean

  • Cyrillic

  • Hebrew

The differences between these mostly come down to illustrations. From the classic and traditional, to the modern and experimental, there is an Alice book for every art style. Below are some of the examples within the Cassady Collection, take your pick and enjoy!

The Alice books have also inspired numerous types of continued media. Movies, games, toys, and even manga have all been inspired by Alice in Wonderland and have examples included in our collection. Some examples are included below.
