This volume showcases all three of Steadman's previous Lewis Carroll titles. Contains all of Steadman's gorgeous illustrations from the initial appearance of each volume, many of them now in color, as well as fourteen entirely new illustrations for this edition. Steadman's quirkiness is perfectly suited to the text, and is a significant contribution to modern Carroll interpretation; his caterpillar and the White King's Soldiers are particularly captivating.
