Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) is a novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures.
Alice was written, exactly three years after the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson and the Reverend Robinson Duckworth rowed in a boat up the River Thames with three little girls Lorina Charlotte Liddell, Alice Pleasance Liddell, and Edith Mary Liddell.† The girls loved it, and Alice Liddell asked Dodgson to write it down for her. After a lengthy delay he eventually did so and on November 26, 1864 gave Alice the handwritten manuscript of Alice's Adventures Under Ground, with illustrations by Dodgson himself.† In 1865, Dodgson's tale was published as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by "Lewis Carroll" with illustrations by John Tenniel.Windham Fabrics in association with the Bridgeman Art Library and the Mary Evans Picture Library bring the tales of Alice to life on fabric. The playful and colorful interpretations of Tennielís original drawings are certain to help inspire a keepsake quilt that will be cherished for generations.
