I did these illustrations for the first few pages of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1998. My intention was to create something that would help young readers make sense of all of the story as they read it on their own, especially the more archaic bits, a sort of visually annotated edition. And because I loved the look and shape of the letters on the page, I penned the text myself, doing it over and over until I got it perfect. It is all done in ink and colored pencil.
