Phaidon: Lewis Carroll
This is a gorgeous collection of some of Lewis Carroll's 3000 photographs taken during the mid-late 1800s. The photographs are mostly portraits of children and prominent Victorian figures like Lord Tennyson - turns out Carroll, apart from being a mathematician and writer, is considered one of the greatest Victorian photographers. The interior is set very nicely with a lot of white space - one photo per right hand page with an accompanying text on the left. The cover is a trip. Taking a part of the text of Alice in Wonderland, the designer has picked out the letters spelling Lewis Carroll. Info to come (I think the designer's first name is Sonya).
