Red Riding Hood

I hope everyone had lovely holidays! Down in Special Collections & Archives, we are all rested up, and are welcoming in 2016 by featuring a lovely shape book of stories and nursery rhymes, published by Ernest Nister in the 1890s.

Walter Crane

Walter Crane (1845-1915) was an English artist and book illustrator, one of the most influential and prolific children's book creators of his generation. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement, and produced a wide variety of materials, including a number of iconic images for the  Socialist League.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

150 years ago this year Lewis Carroll (the pen name of Charles Dodgson) published “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Having originally told the story to Alice Liddell and her sisters Lorina and Edith on a boat trip up the Isis, Carroll later wrote it down for Alice. Initially titled “Alice’s Adventures Underground,” the book has never been out of print since 1865 and is cherished as a beloved children’s story.
