To celebrate 150 years of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The British Library presents Alice in Wonderland an exhibition that explores the origins and fascination for the famous 1865 novel written by English author Lewis Carroll.

As we know, its narrative, colourful characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, and although the story has been adapated to various media, it continues to fascinate new generations of illustrators, authors and artists.

Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript with hand-drawn illustrations is on display in the exhibition which is quite stunning, alongside editions by Mervyn Peake, Ralph Steadman, Leonard Weisgard, Arthur Rackham, illustrations by Salvador Dalí and other artists.
