Alice in Russia

I had the good fortune to hear and meet Russian translator Nina Demurova at a meeting of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America some time ago where she had available some rare editions of her translation of Alice Through the Looking-Glass illustrated by U. Varchenko. Now my collection contains one of these gems signed to me personally by Nina. (The companion Alice’s Adventures is even more gorgeous, but even more rare.) And so I was absolutely delighted today to see this article on the story as to how Alice came to Russia with much help from Nina.
