Alice in Wonderland - wanted! I need your help to create the largest collection of book editions

{1 February 2011}

I just received a present from my friend to celebrate my little Alice's half-year. The present was an excellent edition of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. That gave me an idea! And to make this idea come into life, I need your help!

So, I am aiming to gather the largest possible collection of different editions of Alice in Wonderland, illustrated by as many artists as possible. I can (and I shall) search and order books on Internet, but I think there is only a small part of books I want that I can reach using Internet. But! I am happy to have website with worldwide audience, and some of you might want to participate in this fun project!

If you come across "Alice in Wonderland" book in your local book store, and you don't mind sending it to me, please follow these steps:

- DO NOT buy the book immediately! Please contact me first, using this form - www.vladstudio.com/contact/ . Also, make sure it is nicely illustrated, worth adding to the collection :-) Send me the name of illustrator (and translator if not English). This will prevent me from buying the same book twice.

- I will reply and will confirm I need this edition. If you have Paypal, I will send book cost + shipping cost to your Paypal account. If not, we'll need to discuss how money can be sent.

- if the book is not too expensive, I can send 2 copies of my book, Who Stole The Moon?, in exchange.

- anyone who sends me a book will surely get lifetime Vladstudio account!

I think this is going to be fun! Thanks for reading!

UPDATE - 2 days later, with the help of my website visitors, I already have found and ordered many books! The list of illustrators is below (it will be updated periodically).



UPDATE 2 - just in case you were curious, here is the photo report - the current state of my Alice in Wonderland collection.

Do you want Alice's in any language or just in Russian or English?

Hey Vlad ! I am now in China, so can't really send you the books I have back home in Morocco. But I will as soon as I return. Both are in arabic and the illustrations differ a lot from what you can usually find in the 'Western' world ^^ The books covers : http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQDjH8zqx9UOaPPIx9frTsNjbl7pNqc-gKDk1M7COH4xhDhMDYN&t=1 http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTdx2_3IZ_6LkYYigKn77eAYUwGw8tLQMKzcWI99zzB8-KslXK2&t=1 http://mybook.bibalex.org/i/022294_2.jpg I also found this version of it : http://kristinabullen.com/Images/Scrapbook/scrapbook/alice_in_wonderland.jpg

[Anonymous]: language does not matter as much as illustrations. I saw African edition somewhere in Internet - that was incredible! :-)

Hi Vlad. I think I have two Alice in Wonderland books at home. One is older than 30 years, and one is the copy I used in elementary school. I'm not sure how to send them to you if you want them. Oh, I do have to find them among my mini library first. :)

Hassnae: excellent! Thanks so much. Please send me message using contact form on my website when you're back. Thanks!

Two friends of mine have the same collection but with "The little Prince". If I find any book here I'll tell you
