Concept and Art

Jabberwock Edition combines Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There into a beautiful numbered edition limited to 260 copies.

Creative concept for this edition is based on the idea that we wanted to put you, the reader, into Alice’s shoes. That is why all twenty illustrations (done by Damir Mazinjanin) that you’ll find inside are from Alice’s point of view; each pulling you a bit further into the story and showing the plot from a unique angle. Besides these twenty, of which two are full-spread illustrations, there are certain illustrated bonuses, like small chapter illustrations and an illustrated surprise that can be find in the middle. This surprise is placed there since the two sequels are fused into one book, each beginning on one cover and ending in the middle. This is also a small tribute to the Looking-Glass world, so it seemed fitting for this edition. Another thing that heavily influenced the creative concept was the writer’s love for math and logic (and not psychedelics like many seem to think), which he loved to bend, twist and break in his writing. That was channeled through the use of optical illusions on the covers, which do exactly that kind of thing to logic in the real world.

When you open the book, you are greeted with pearl-white endpapers with cards and squares motif. The title of the first book is written normally, while the title of the sequel is written backwards as a nod to the looking-glass world, so it can only be properly read when pointed to a mirror. There is a small introduction from Lewis Carroll on one side, as well as a so-called “Foreafterword” on the beginning of the sequel, which explains the creative concept and the thought process behind it.

We wanted the slipcase to completely protect the book, so it’s fully capped, and hides a small surprise when you look into its cap. Also, with each copy comes a transparent Cheshire Cat bookmark, should you need any guidance on your reading adventures.

As previously mentioned, the whole run has only 260 copies, with five additional ones marked with roman numerals for the key participants of the projects, making it quite a rarity in the book world.

Production

No expense was spared in picking the materials and production techniques for this wonderful edition of Alice. Numerous elements had to be carefully handmade due to complexity of its execution. Traditionally, to ensure the best reading experience we used the beautiful and versatile Brioni typeface, as always.

The book is draped in a luxurious, orange-red fabric which boasts a rich texture. Despite its delicate looks, the material is very durable and water-repellant. The illustrations on the covers were created using a jacquard technique, which means that hundreds upon hundreds of small threads were woven in order to produce the optical illusion. Also, each cover was placed on the book block by hand. As for the slipcase, it uses the same type of fabric as the covers and it boasts copper foil stamping of the title on its side.

The card symbols and square pattern on endpapers were made with UV coating to achieved the glossy effect upon the pearl-white paper, while the page edges were stamped with silver foil.

The bookmark is made out of transparent material, in order to achieve the illusion of Cheshire Cat’s smile appearing from thin air if the bookmark is protruding out of the book. Please note that the materials is somewhat sensitive, so it would be left with marks if you scratch it (just like a cat got to it!).

Orange-red thread was used for binding the book, which was then glued afterwards to provide maximum durability.

All of the above, and numerous other details, make this truly unique edition of Alice.

Shipping

Since we put a lot of effort into creation of our books, we like to see them delivered safe and sound (and fast!) straight into your hands. That is why we ship with DHL Express, which means the books will be trackable at all times and they’ll arrive straight into your hands (unless you state otherwise). This also means they should arrive within 3-5 business days at the latest, but they’ll usually arrive within two business days, depending at what time of the day you made your order. Also please note that this edition will be covered with insurance while shipping.

Please be aware that although books are not subject to customs fee in many countries, they might be in yours. This may mean they’ll be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do about customs clearance – customs rules of each country make the importer (the buyer – you!) responsible for these fees.

Stunning work!!

Marko and his team really knocked it out of the park with this one! The artwork by Damir is top notch! The attention to detail is just unreal. The time and effort Amaranthine puts into each book is what makes them a next level publisher. The Alice Jabberwock edition is now my favorite book! I can't wait to see what they do next!!
