¶ Mervyn Peake's Drawings for ALICE were drawn in 1945 for publication in the 1946 Zephyr Books edition published in Sweden. many of the drawings were on wartime cellulose-based paper, some were stuck down unevenly on boards. The images were rather badly reproduced. The original 67 drawings are here reproduced from the original drawings; they have been painstakingly restored digitally and are here reproduced for the first time as high-quality images.
