The Macmillan Alice: Mad Hatter Print

Lewis Carroll

About the book

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, by Lewis Carroll, was first published in 1865 by Macmillan & Co. In January 1864 Carroll met with the illustrator John Tenniel, and in Tenniel's hands, the characters of Wonderland came to life.
Printing Tenniel's images in the first edition of the book involved careful preparation - the drawings were carved into woodblocks by wood engravers, and the blocks were used to create metal 'electrotypes' that would be used on the printing press. This fine art print shows one of the most iconic characters, the Mad Hatter.
In 2014 Macmillan created a new set of reproductions from the original woodblocks, now held in the British Library. The printing has been done on a traditional 4-colour proofing press, printing directly onto art-quality paper to create a beautiful image to keep forever.
