Evertype: New Adventures of Alice

Postby Evertype » Sun Aug 22, 2010 10:12 am

Evertype would like to announce the publication of New Adventures of Alice, a sequel to Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, written and illustrated in 1917 by John Rae.

From the introduction:

John Rae (1882–1963) was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, and was educated at Pratt Institute High School in Brooklyn. In 1900 he attended the Art Students League of New York where he studied under illustrator and artist Howard Pyle. Of the better-known children’s books Rae wrote and illustrated are New Adventures of Alice, Grasshopper Green and The Meadow Mice, and Granny Goose. More than fifty books, and many magazines of the day, sported Rae’s illustrations. From 1935 to 1940, he taught Painting and Design at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. From the 1930s to the 1950s, Rae engaged in portraiture work, and notably painted the portraits of Carl Sandburg and Albert Einstein. Rae was a member of the Artists Guild, the Artists League of America, and the Society of American Illustrators, and was listed in Who’s Who in America from 1926 to 1958.

Rae’s book fulfils his own wish that Carroll had written another book about Wonderland. In it Alice visits a number of Mother Goose characters, as well as a remarkable artist, a poet, and a printer—characters certainly familiar to John Rae himself.
