English illustrator Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) created what came to be iconic images in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. He also illustrated the sequel, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, as well as over fifty years of political cartoons for the British magazine Punch. Tenniel was knighted in 1893.
Curator Prime is delighted to present all fifty of Sir Tenniel’s illustrations from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There in this adult coloring book. Alice and the Mad Hatter are joined by the Red and White Queen, the Walrus and the Carpenter, the Lion and the Unicorn, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Humpty Dumpty, the Jabberwock, and the White Knight, among others.
Curator Prime has also created a Vintage Coloring book of all forty-two of Sir Tenniel’s illustrations from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
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 fifty 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.
