We all adore Lewis Carroll's classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, but now there's something that will make you love the book even more – Vivienne Westwood just designed the cover of a new edition to commemorate the tale's 150th anniversary.

The cover features a Harlequin-inspired print, which represents both Vivienne's brand (you know how much she loves that print), and the fantasy world of Alice. Vivienne, who is a fan of the book, also requested that the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel be featured in the book.

The 74-year-old designer also wrote the introduction, which included some really good advice for young people: "Kids! Never become complacent. The world we think we know reflects the way we are conditioned to see it. Maybe it’s not like that at all. Carroll is on your side. Always wonder."

Published by Vintage Classics, the book is available at Vivienne Westwood stores and her online shop for £15 (approx. RM85).
