First Steadman-illustrated edition. Steadman’s brilliant and original vision brings new vitality and humor to Carroll’s classic tale. In Steadman's hands, the White Rabbit becomes a modern commuter with complete with bowler hat and umbrella, the March Hare and the Mad Hatter sit at a table with a tree growing through the middle and the playing cards look like coal miners complete with flat caps and disgruntled grimaces. One of the great illustrated editions of this timeless classic.
