Alice in Wonderland book reviews:
Templar Publishing - "Rediscover one of the most original and experimental children's classics of the 19th century as seen throughout the eyes of top fantasy illustrator Rodney Matthews. With stunning illustrations including six double-page artworks, [some] of which are owned by Terry Jones and John Cleese, this is a lavish collector's edition to treasure. Shortlisted for the Children’s Trade category of the British Book Design and Production Awards 2009."
John Cleese - "Masaccio, Michelangelo, Manet, Monet, Matisse, Munch, Mondrian, and Matthews. All my favourite artists begin with 'M'. And so Rodney Matthews is generally acknowledged to be among the greatest artists that have ever lived. Need I say more? Please buy this book, and all his other works, because then my immense collection of his stuff will become even more valuable. Especially when he dies."
