It’s been a bit busy around here - what it will be like with a grandchild I cannot even begin to imagine. Just now I’ve snatched the time to comment on your immense Christmas gift of these illustrations. Such variety, such interpretive nuances. Just like ornaments on a tree.

With all the illustrations presented at once I really found how my taste in illustrations leans. I like Leech and Clarkson Stanfield and John Tenniel. I guess that means I’m old school.

When you collect these illustrations you are providing us with a visual narrative, a way to experience the text in a unique and intriguing manner. For that, I am grateful and thank you.


Bionic Jean (bionicjean) Kim, I have been feasting my eyes on these too! Thank you!

My edition is again the "Pears Centenary edition", which had the illustrations by Charles Green which were commissioned for it. So I especially like these. They have a photographic quality, as I said with one of the earlier Christmas book, and with their special attention to lighting, they are very atmospheric.

Although I love Tenniel's quirkiness, Harry Furniss's grotesques and Fred Barnard's attention to detail, I think Charles Green captures the true spirit (pardon the pun) of this book.
