Alice in Wonderland Signed by Ralph Steadman

Ralph Steadman's 1967 illustrations for Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland are almost fifty years old now, but they were modern classics from day one. A personalized copy of the 2006 paperback edition includes a quick sketch of Alice. She's looking rather angular and a bit crude here, more so than in the fantastical illustrations. This copy of the book was sold on eBay August 16, 2008 for $55.54 plus shipping and insurance.

Note:  This blog's author welcomes photos or scans of signed books by Ralph Steadman, particularly those containing original drawings. Got a Snark to share?
