New Alice in Wonderland marks 150th anniversary

Vintage Classics is to release a 150th anniversary gift edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, with a cover and introduction by designer Dame Vivienne Westwood.

The special edition of Lewis Carroll’s classic will also include end papers by the fashion designer, as well as Through The Looking Glass and the original Tenniel illustrations.

Westwood's Red Label Autumn-Winter 2011/12 catwalk show was inspired by Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Vintage said: “From her catwalk shows inspired by Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures to her world-famous British inspired collections, Dame Vivienne Westwood has always seen the world through the looking glass.

“To celebrate the 150th anniversary of her favourite children’s story she has created a unique front cover and end paper for this very special edition. Vivienne has also contributed an introduction to explain her passion for Lewis Carroll’s classic and how it links to her personal manifesto for change.”

The special edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland will be released on 2nd April as a £15 hardback.
