 I've long been a fan of Lewis Carroll's ALICE books. I've also been a fan of the many intepretations of the work by illustrators over the years. Here are some of my favorites.

"Dozens of artists, from all decades, all parts of the world, and all styles have illustrated Lewis Carroll's literary legend over the last 100 years. The Art of Alice in Wonderland is the definite work on the subject, bringing together this remarkable art for the first time, and illuminating a book that will forever influenced children's literature and adult imagination. With a stunning eight-page fold-out of artwork and 150 other delightful and important photographs and illustrations, this book is like a rich gallery of Alice art. Organized by character, the book takes the reader on a guided tour through the Wonderland of the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, and the other beloved characters who have entered every child's and adult's imagination. All the while, the authoritative yet accessible text informs the reader about the fascinating symbolic meaning of this enduring tale."
 Since I was a kid I've often considered creating my own images for Alice In Wonderland but still haven't gotten around to it. Maybe some day.
not a book but a brilliant intepretaton just the same, Czech animator Jan Svankmajer's ALICE. In this clip Alice enters the Court and meets the Queen of Hearts.
A recent purchase. Mary Blair's production art for Disney's ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
