Alice in Wonderland – Beautiful Foreign Editions
The Illustrated Alice Bibliography, Part 5: Alice in Translation
This page is a continuation of the illustrated bibliography of Alice in Wonderland editions – here I’ve included a variety of some of the most beautiful non-English editions. Special thanks to @semperluxus on Instagram who introduced me to many of these editions – you should check out her feed where she shares lots of photos of interesting editions in multiple languages!
Earlier pages of this bibliography focus on English editions of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass books (Page 1 has contemporary editions, Page 2 covers 1970-2010, and Page 3 are vintage editions, Page 4 has some fun Alice-inspired series spin-offs and gift ideas, and the bookshelf tour has a video of my own collection).
Alice in Translation
Alicia en el País de las Maravillas [Spanish]
Illustrated by Evgenija Chistotina, translated by Emmanuèle Sandron
Estudio Didáctico, 2018
An elegant Alice by a Ukrainian artist.
Illustrated by Benjamin Lacombe
Lacombe’s absolutely magical baroque fantasy Wonderland is a world full of satirical references. The fantastic illustrations use gouache, oils and watercolours to create a graphic and surrealistic landscape. The book is available in French, German and Spanish. An English version has been promised for many years but has not yet eventuated.
