John Vernon Lord is one of the pre-eminent names of modern book illustration, not only through his impressive list of illustrated publications, but also as one whose profound influence on generations of talented artists across the entire field of illustration has been extensive and widely respected.
John is an artist of wide ranging technical ability and imaginative reserves without depth, and Illustrationcupboard is delighted to present John Vernon Lord’s newly released and much-awaited Alice through the Looking Glass. This second collaboration with boutique publishers Artists’ Choice Editions is the much-loved sequel to the initial adventure, Alice in Wonderland.
After two years of meticulous production, this exhibit of John’s original artwork displays his superb technical ability and extraordinary imagination. Not only an absolute must for any Alice enthusiast, it offers a treat for all collectors to acquire beautifully crafted artwork by a truly worked-class illustrator. Artwork will be viable for purchase from £195 and copies of Alice through the Looking Glass (edition of 320) signed and numbered by John Vernon Lord will be available at the gallery for £99. Special slipcase editions will be available for £320, containing four giclée prints and an illustrated booklet.
