Grahame Baker–Smith | 150 Years of Alice

Perhaps one of the most iconic and surreal children’s books ever written, Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland has left a lasting imprint on the imaginations of many a child (and adult). This year Marks the 150th anniversary of the novels publication and a landmark in literary history.

The Royal Mail has a colourful history of illustrated stamps, commemorating a vast array of occasions. This year, to mark the anniversary they have commissioned a set of ten, featuring the most well-known scenes from the book.

Illustrated by award winning author and children’s book illustrator Grahame Baker-Smith, the stamps are beautifully stylistic, providing a fresh new take on the classic illustrations of the novel.

Coinciding with the stamps release, Royal Mail have also teamed up with Childrens book publisher Walker Books, to publish a three dimensional book, bringing the text to life with Grahames stamp artwork.
