Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Berkeley: University of California Press, 1982.


Moser set out to show Wonderland through Alice’s eyes, and thus Alice herself (modeled on his youngest daughter Maddy) appears only four times. Some find the illustrations terrifying, aggressive, and even sinister. Moser wrote in the afterword:


I have tried to keep the illustrations weird (yet reasonable), and grotesque (yet humorous), but I have not tried to make them pretty or graceful.
