Arthur Rackham’s Gothic Alice in Wonderland illustrations. At the time, in 1907, many felt that Sir John Tenniel’s original illustrations for Alice (1865) had become so iconic that any other interpretation was blasphemy. However, Rackham made Alice both more sweet & more scary. pic.twitter.com/zBMImz9BwW

We couldn’t let Sir John Tenniel’s birthday pass without a mention! Here he is transforming Alice’s croquet mallet from Carroll’s original drawing of an ostrich into a flamingo. He appealed to Carroll’s sense of logic by persuading him that Alice couldn’t hold the larger bird! pic.twitter.com/yERx1R6Ufh

Hardly anyone knows the name Sir John Tenniel. But everyone knows the Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter and the March Hare from the fairy tale novel “Alice in Wonderland”. It was Tenniel who illustrated the book and helped make the characters immortal. pic.twitter.com/ii7MAQZb1Z
