Julia Arenas magnificent rustic covers for Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and A Boy’s Journey to Wonderland, reveal an artist’s brushstroke and originality never seen in previous versions of this famous book series. This artist use of texture, sand, watercolors and oils, are as hearty and imaginative as the child in the story. A great tribute to Alice, a girl with bounds of imagination.
Inside, inspired from her Spanish roots, Julia emphasizes quotes, lift off from the text with decorated backgrounds and bold letters, making it singularly attractive.
Volume 3 of Julia Arenas' series, A Boy’s Journey to Wonderland, is a recount of Lewis Carroll’s life as a boy, his influences and things that inspired him later to write Alice in Wonderland. Interesting details of his life, from his encounter with the future King Edward VII, his passion for photography, and the real Alice, who, along with her two sisters were the first to hear the story from the young professor in a canoe ride at the University of Oxford.
Julia Arena's intrinsic design of the 150-year-old perennial, Alice in Wonderland, with its old world charm and dramatic textures, it's definitively a must-add-to-my-book-shelf for any fan of the story and even more so for those who have not read it yet. -Cardenas Book Review
This beautifully designed new edition of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland reminds me of the antique technique of wood carving illustrations used by printers about the time this book was first published more than 150 years ago. I admire the guts of artist Julia Arenas, who instead of going for a modern take, as many of our young designers are doing nowadays, gives us the magic of the old, mixed with the new, in the retelling of a story as classic as can be. -Flora Bella
The third volume, A Boy's Journey to Wonderland, with its informative, yet amiable tale of the life and inspirations of Lewis Carroll, since childhood up to the creation of his magnum opus, Alice in Wonderland, is what makes this an indispensable collection. -Eileen St. Martin
