Today Royal Mail launched ten new stamps to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s classic book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
This is not the first time Alice in Wonderland has appeared on British stamps. The 13p stamp below from July 1979 was issued to mark the International Year of the Child. It features Alice, the Mad Hatter and the Cheshire Cat in one of John Tenniel’s memorable illustrations from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
There is little doubt that Tenniel’s drawings have helped make Alice in Wonderland an icon, just as much as the words of her creator Lewis Carroll.
The stamps are available online, by phone on 03457 641 641 and in 8,000 Post Offices throughout the UK.
