Alice In Wonderland Chess

The book's an all-time literary classic and the new 3D film version is a masterpiece - just awesome! So, here at CheckmateChessSets we've pulled together for you a selection of no less than 6 versions of the classic Alice in Wonderland Chess Set theme!

But what do we know of the author, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson? Who? Yes, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832-1898) preferred to be known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll in his writings about Alice. The son of a country parson, the young Charles was educated at Rugby and Christ Church Oxford. Exceptionally gifted, the young Charles wrote poems and short stories from an early age and was to become an accomplished mathematician, logician and photographer.

His first and most successful commercial success was finally published in 1865 as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. The sequel Through the Looking-Glass And What Alice Found There was to follow in 1871.

The professional illustrator was Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914). Tenniel was a regular cartoonist and caricaturist in Punch and eventually knighted in 1893. Tenniel's illustrations were to become some of the most famous literary illustrations ever produced. It was Tenniel's early coloured illustrations of Alice featured her in a blue dress with a white pinafore which were to become both so endearing and enduring. Check out the individual product descriptions at CheckmateChessSets for those which have been specifically inspired by Tenniel's illustrations of Lewis Carroll's characters in his books about the adventures of Alice!

"Off with their heads!" is, of course, her most famous line from the Lewis Carroll story. So, now it's time for you to decide whether to take the side of the card from a pack of playing cards turned executioner or that of Alice? The choice is yours in our Alice v The Queen of Hearts option!
