Emma Chichester Clark grew up in the countryside in Ireland in an old farmhouse that inspired her first works. She studied graphic design at the Chelsea Art School in the 70s and post-graduated in illustration at the Royal College of Art. In 88, she won the Mother Goose Award for best newcomer, with “Listen to this” , a collection of seven picture books. Her nice illustrations fill the pages of many books that can be visited using this link. You may also enjoy her PLUMDOG BLOG.
Emma Chichester Clark illustrated Alice is a faithful condensed form of the original story, beautifully illustrated with new vivid versions of the mad characters brought to our imaginarium by Lewis Carroll. Alice itself seems to be inspired on the “Madeline“ books. This retold Alice was first published in 2009 by Harper Collins.
