We're All Mad Here

Some of my favourite book illustrations of all time are for the Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and especially these ones by Arthur Rackham.  Rackham was a English book illustrator who invented his own unique style and technique. His pieces were known for their luxurious use of color and great attention to detail. Unlike John Tenniel's illustrations for the original Alice, Rackman's brings out the dark side to Alice in Wonderland which I personally love. His images are just stunningly beautiful and remind of Tim Burton's film adaption of Alice in Wonderland.

Rackman also did many other notable works for such titles as Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, A Midsummer Night's Dream, A Christmas Carol, Cinderella, The Sleeping Beauty and The Wind in the Willows. You can find many website and images about him and his work just by searching on Google.
