This month in 1865 Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, featuring John Tenniel's classic illustrations, was published for the very first time (the edition was quickly withdrawn when Tenniel complained about the printing of his illustrations and an improved edition was published in November).

To celebrate, Alex Clark talks with Robert Douglas-Fairhurst about The Story of Alice and with Creative Director Suzanne Dean about design, fashion and the icon that is Alice.

  • Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (150th Anniversary Edition with Dame Vivienne Westwood)

  • It seems a wonder such a pairing has not come about sooner. This special anniversary edition of Lewis Carroll’s tale fits in with the twisted take on Britishness that Dame Vivienne Westwood is famous for in a magical Wonderland setting.

    From her catwalk shows inspired by the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party to her world famous twisted take on Britishness, Dame Vivienne Westwood has always seen the world through the looking glass. Now she has illustrated her favourite children's story by creating a unique front cover and end papers for this very special edition.

    Includes Through the Looking Glass and the original Tenniel illustrations.
