A Long Tale (Alice in Wonderland)

In 2008, when Templar published their collector's classic edition of Alice in Wonderland, Matthews achieved his lifelong ambition to illustrate the most well known children's story ever written.  He had waited for this opportunity since the age of six, ever since his sister Beryl had taken him to see the Walt Disney movie in 1951. Matthews' "wonderland" is sinister, capturing the essence of Lewis Carroll's tale.  In addition to the many coloured pieces, fourteen pencil drawings were also featured in the book.  Matthews found plenty of scope in the Alice story to illustrate slightly whimsical creatures in surreal situations.
