    Under ground… because it’s out of sight and out of reach of all our senses.
    Under ground… because it’s far away from the light.
    Under ground… because that’s where creepy things make their nests.
    Under ground… because that’s where the dead go to sleep and turn into bone.
    Under ground… because for Lewis Carroll, that’s where Wonderland was. The book’s first manuscript, hand-written for little Alice Liddell, bore the title “Alice’s Adventures Under Ground”.

    Three years after the release of Alice Under Ground, #logosedizioni publishes a new expanded edition with 7 new illustrations and new funny characters of this homage Stefano Bessoni – writer and illustrator – pays to the genius of Lewis Carroll. Freely adapted from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, the book is a travel journal with notes and sketches on the inhabitants of Wonderland. A bestiary compiled from the perspective of a Victorian naturalist, simultaneously passionate about insects, skeletons, ghosts and photography… It’s a journey among underground inhabitants seen from a slightly macabre personal perspective, an outsider’s viewpoint, where Alice too becomes an underground dweller, perfectly at home in that reversed world which is supposed to astonish her.
