Sir John Tenniel (1820-1914) was an English illustrator. He drew many topical cartoons and caricatures for Punch in the late 19th century, but is best remembered today for his illustrations for Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.

Henry Holiday (1839-1927) was an English historical genre and landscape painter, stained glass designer, illustrator and sculptor. He is considered to be a member of the Pre-Raphaelite school of art. He attended Leigh's art academy (where a fellow student was Frederick Walker) and in 1855, at the age of 15, was admitted to the Royal Academy. Through his friendship with Albert Moore and Simeon Solomon he was introduced to the artists Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris of the "Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood." In January 1874, Holiday was commissioned by Lewis Carroll to illustrate "The Hunting of the Snark". He remained friends with the author throughout his life.
