Sir John Tenniel
Images by Sir John Tinniel from the 1871 edition of Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There.
Sir John Tinniel (February 28, 1820 - February 25, 1914) is best known for his illustrations of Lewis Carrol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, but he also contributed cartoons to Punch, Britain's magazine of political satire. He worked for the magazine for over fifty years, and anthropomorphism was one tool in his arsenal of humor. He earned the prefix "Sir" when Queen Victoria knighted him for his artistry in 1893.
