Mad Hatter's Tea Party

Greg Hildebrandt

"Why is a raven like a writing-desk?", asked the Mad Hatter. And Alice, thought, "Come, we shall have some fun, now!"

In 1865, Lewis Carroll wrote one of the most popular fantasy novels of all time -- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Since its original publication, this story is so popular among children and adults that it has been adapted for movies, plays, television, and illustrated editions.

In 1990, Greg Hildebrandt took on one of the greatest challenges of his career when he decided to do his own illustrated edition of Alice in Wonderland. His love of the Disney movie and many of the illustrated books that had already been published made this a daunting task for him. Why? Because Greg wanted his Alice to look completely different from everything that had been done in the past. Greg struggled and nearly drove himself as mad as the Mad Hatter, but ultimately, his illustrated storybook was a huge success! Greg put his heart and soul into the Alice in Wonderland paintings, and says that the moment he truly embraced this project was when he, too, fell down the rabbit hole.
