Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914), an English illustrator, is perhaps best known for the artwork he created for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. Knighted in 1893, he also drew political cartoons for the British magazine Punch for over fifty years.
Curator Prime is delighted to present all forty-two of Sir Tenniel’s illustrations from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in this adult coloring book. The now iconic representations of Alice, the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Gryphon and the Mock Turtle, and the White Rabbit are joined by less familiar characters such as the members of the Caucus-Race, the Duchess, Father William and his son, and a personal favorite of Curator Prime, Bill the Lizard.
Curator Prime has also created a Vintage Coloring book of all fifty of Sir Tenniel’s illustrations from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.
The following images are all of the pages included in this vintage adult coloring book (the website URL is only on these images; it is not printed on the pages in the book). There are forty-two full page (8.5″ x 11″) illustrations, one per page, some presented vertically, some presented horizontally.
The last few pages of the coloring book are intentionally left blank so you have a place to try out the coloring implements of your choice.
Due to the thickness of the paper, colored pencils are recommended. Markers may be used, and even though the images are printed single-sided, a sheet of cardstock or a few pieces of copy paper under the page you are coloring is useful to prevent possible bleed-through onto the next illustration.
