Author Bio

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898), an English writer, mathematician and academic. It was while working as a lecturer at Oxford University that Carroll met the daughter of Henry George Liddell, dean of Christ Church College. Four year old Alice became the audience for Carroll's fantastical stories and the inspiration for his much-loved lead character.

Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) was an prominent illustrator and political cartoonist. An alumnus of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, he was knighted for artistic achievements in 1893, the first such honour ever bestowed on an illustrator. He was the principal cartoonist for the bestselling satirical magazine Punch and is also known for his illustrations of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There. Tenniel's detailed black-and-white drawings remain the definitive depiction of the Alice characters, with comic book illustrator and writer Bryan Talbot stating, "Carroll never describes the Mad Hatter: our image of him is pure Tenniel."
