Nearly 60 years after Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was first published, a filmmaker named Walt Disney created a silent film about a girl named Alice. This pilot led Disney down a rabbit hole to form a company that would go on to become synonymous with fairy tales - including making further versions of the Alice story with the beloved 1951 animated film, the more-recent live-action versions and several iconic Disney Park experiences. Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland: An Illustrated History delves behind-the-scenes of those whimsical worlds.
Any Alice buff will still learn something new in this comprehensive look at all the adaptations of Lewis Carroll's famous story spanning from the 1920s to 2010s. Full of beautiful illustrations and extensive information.
