Several years have passed since my edition of "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" published. I was working on the "Looking Glass", but time after time I took a little detours working on other projects. I illustrated "Nursery Rhymes", then "Hunting of the Snark", as well as "Freudoscope" and Inuit Myths; these were quite different projects, and work on them refreshed me like a sort of intellectual vacation. So when I have decided to return to illustrate "Looking Glass", I felt like coming back to something that I missed; I was a sort of homesick and I was going back home. Needless to say, I wanted to keep the same illustrating style for the "Looking Glass" as with "Wonderland". I consider that as the obvious condition, only the difference was is in technological change. This simply means that now I draw the entire illustration using only one utensil - a graphite pencil, and then adjust the sepia part in computer. This is the same method as I have used in the Hunting of the Snark...
