Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Illustrated by A. Rado.

London: W.H. Cornelius, [1944].


The Hungarian architect and artist Anthony (originally Antal) Rado settled in London in the 1940s and illustrated a number of English classics. He somewhat models his Alice illustrations on Rackham, but they are less threatening and more imaginative, e.g., the price slip in the Hatter’s hatband is £99 instead of 10/6 (quite steep inflation) and the White Rabbit’s house has a wonderful rabbit-ears-shaped thatch roof. Alice is depicted in an unusual red pinafore wrap dress.
