Adrienne Segur was a French children’s book illustrator. Segur’s illustrations were made known by the publishing house Flammarion in the 1950s and 1960s and appeared particularly in The Fairy Tale Book, the English translation of Il Etait Une Fois published in 1958 by Golden Books, Simon and Schuster.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is an 1865 novel written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a young girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a subterranean fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures.
It was an instant success and became a classic, one of the most popular and famous children’s book of all time. Sir John Tenniel illustrated the original book and left his mark as the Alice’s illustrator. Many famous illustrators have taken their turn illustrating Alice’s since then, but none have surpassed Sir John Tenniel’s magical illustrations.
