Vintage 1975 Arthur Rackham and Green Tiger Press Stationery and Keepsake Gift Box Featuring 'Alice In Wonderland'

From the wonderful people of Green Tiger Press, a lovely lavender stationery box featuring a tipped-in portrait of "Alice" by Arthur Rackham, originally appearing in the 1907 publication of Lewis Caroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland".

This box, originally from 1971-75, once held 6 different Arthur Rackham note cards with matching envelopes. The cards are now all stamped, mailed, and forgotten but this original box is too pretty not to be kept.

Gift to the Alice you love, your fairy tale fancier ... use for your own stationery or keepsakes, your special letters and notes, as a very special gifting box ... it's a beautiful box featuring Rackham's lovely "Alice" portrait. The box top and its sides has been sun-faded to a lovely pale lilac and the box bottom and its sides have not been sun-faded and remains its lovely original lavender. The box bottom base has the Green Tiger Press' label securely attached.

The box bottom base has the Green Tiger Press' label securely attached. The box closes smoothly and the mar cannot be seen when closed.

Particulars: measures 5.5" x 7.5" x 1" (14x19x2.5 cm), the lid fits smoothly and securely .

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

Arthur Rackham is widely regarded as one of the leading illustrators from the 'Golden Age' of British book illustration which encompassed the years from 1900 until the start of the First World War. During that period, there was a strong market for high quality illustrated books that typically were given as Christmas gifts.

Many of Rackham's books were produced in a deluxe limited edition, often vellum bound and sometimes signed, as well as a larger, less ornately bound quarto 'trade' edition. This was often followed by a more modestly presented octavo edition in subsequent years for particularly popular books.

The onset of the war in 1914 curtailed the market for such quality books, and the public's taste for fantasy and fairies also declined in the 1920's.
