Alice In Wonderland - original artwork for dustwrapper by Margaret Tarrant.
This dust-wrapper design was one of the last commisions produced by Margaret Tarrant. It is a re-working of her original frontispiece which she produced for Ward Lock. This updated version also for Ward Lock was produced circa 1950 and incorporates a design of Alice and Pink Flamingo for the spine artwork. Gouache, watercolour and ink. image size 20 cm x 22.5 cm
It is very difficult to find original examples of Margaret Tarrant's Alice artwork and a design for the front cover is extremely desirable.
Included in the price is a copy of the published book which reproduces the original artwork as its dustwrapper.
