Although many people associate "Alice in Wonderland" with the illustrations of John Tenniel or the animation of Walt Disney, Alice is actually one of the most fertile texts for illustration, at least in the world of children's literature. A consideration of these illustrations over time reveals fascinating shifts in social values, attitudes about children, and conceptualizations of Alice herself.
