Boyd Tonkin in The Independent

Boyd Tonkin writing in The Independent today, captures not only the spirit incorporated into the highly original interpretations of the characters from Lewis Carroll's masterpiece, Alice, but sets the work in historical context. Mervyn Peake's life-changing experiences in immediate post-war Germany informed to a great degree the way in which his work developed. Malgre the awfulness of the witness, like Goya and Picasso his art would reach new heights of intuitive perception, unmatched in illustration.
