The Royal Mail has released a series of 10 stamps featuring quite-lovely new illustrations based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which was published 150 years ago. Grahame Baker-Smith's artworks also form the basis of a new pop-up book.
Grahame's illustrations include some of the book's best-known scenes including Alice falling down the rabbit hole that begins her adventures and drinking the potion that shrinks her (shown here). There are also portraits of the book's iconic characters such as the Cheshire Cat, the Red Queen and the White Rabbit.
The pop-up book (shown here) has been created by Walker Books, publisher of some of the best children's picture books around including Jon Klassan's I Want My Hat Back and Chris Haughton's A Bit Lost.
The stamps are available from your local post office for sending letters and parcels – as well as presentation sets and framed prints from royalmail.com/alice. i'm very tempted to buy the Wonderland bundle for my daughter, Alice.
