This year Alice turns 150 years old and to celebrate there have been numerous collector's and special editions published. This is the one you *need* to own. Just pick it up, feel the weight of it, the texture, go ahead, smell it. This book screams COLLECTOR. The text is the same story you've always known and loved, but this is Alice as you've never seen her before. Illustrated by the beloved surrealist Salvador Dali, this book is sure to delight the artist, the bibliophile, and somewhat surprisingly, the mathematician on your list.— Heather

Doug Ewell devised the Ewellic alphabet in 1980, as a form of secret writing. A decade later, after Ewell had become a supporter of the Unicode Standard, he worked to improve his alphabet's character repertoire and encoding. Ewellic is a phonemic alphabet, like Shavian, Unifon, and shorthands such as Pitman and Gregg. With fonts specially designed by Michael Everson, this edition of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" is written entirely in this unique featural alphabet.
