A curious piece of trivia is that Charles Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) did the original illustrations in the book shown in the linked page. However, he found them too amateurish and asked cartoonist John Tenniel to do the more familiar illustrations in the published version.

Personally, I find the original illustrations to be much more pleasing, but I do see the point of getting a professional illustrator. Perhaps I'm just not as appreciative of the Victorian cartoon style (a la Punch) by Tenniel.
