Description

Dive into the mesmerizing world of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with our premium leather-bound edition from 1980. Commonly known as Alice in Wonderland, this masterpiece by Lewis Carroll, beautifully curated by Kadri Books, promises an enthralling experience, echoing the same charm and wonder that has made it a beloved tale for generations.

The story begins with Alice, a young girl whose curiosity leads her down a rabbit hole and into the fantastical realm of Wonderland. Here, she encounters an array of eccentric characters — from the enigmatic Cheshire Cat, with its iconic grin, to the frantic White Rabbit always running late. She's invited (or at times, uninvited) to the maddest of tea parties hosted by the Mad Hatter, witnesses the whimsical wisdom of the Caterpillar, and navigates the unpredictable temper of the Queen of Hearts, whose love for croquet is as renowned as her penchant for decapitations.

But Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is not merely a tale of whimsy. Its layers of symbolism and wit have made it a subject of study and admiration, ensuring its relevance even in contemporary times. The story's themes of identity, growth, and the often nonsensical nature of adulthood resonate deeply, making it as much a tale for adults as for children.

This edition, bound in rich leather, ensures a tactile experience as you journey with Alice through the Looking Glass and encounter characters like the Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the philosophical Mock Turtle, and the elusive Jabberwocky. The illustrations, reminiscent of John Tenniel's original artworks, add depth to every page, making characters like the Dormouse and the March Hare leap to life.

Beyond the tale, Lewis Carroll's legacy as a poet and photographer shines through in his detailed world-building and character sketches. This edition pays homage to his genius by encapsulating the timeless essence of Wonderland.

Did you know? The Mad Hatter's peculiar hat bears a card inscribed with "10/6", a nod to its cost — ten shillings and sixpence. Such details have cemented Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as a literary classic and cultural phenomenon.

As you turn the pages of this edition, you'll understand why the tale has remained a favorite, from its 1951 adaptation to Johnny Depp's portrayal of the Mad Hatter. And for those enamored by the Wonderland universe, Kadri Books offers a treasure trove of Alice-inspired merchandise, from the Cheshire Cat costume to the intricate Alice in Wonderland jewelry.

With Kadri Books, step into a Wonderland that's as magical and relevant today as it was during Lewis Carroll's time. Let your imagination wander, and find yourself lost in a world where anything is possible.

Book Care

Taking proper care of your leatherbound and vintage books can significantly extend their lifespan and preserve the beauty of their binding. Here are some general guidelines to ensure your precious books last for generations:

  • Avoid Direct Sunlight: Over time, direct sunlight can cause the leather to fade and degrade. Always store your books away from direct sunlight.
  • Keep Books Dry: Leather and humidity don't mix well. Keep your books in a dry, well-ventilated environment to prevent mold growth.
  • Avoid High Temperatures: High heat can dry out the leather, leading to cracks. Room temperature is ideal for your books.
  • Clean Regularly: Dust your books with a soft cloth. For deeper cleaning, consider a gentle leather cleaner, but always spot-test first.
  • Handle with Clean Hands: Oils and dirt from your hands can damage the pages and leather over time. Ensure your hands are clean and dry before handling.

Remember, these are books to be loved, respected, and passed down - your care ensures their stories continue to be told.
