“Alice In Wonderland” (1915)
The British Library has posted online scans of the original manuscript of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures Under Ground.
Be prepared to lose a couple hours.
It also should be noted that Lewis Carroll himself did all the drawings in this manuscript. His mock turtle and griffin is one of my all time favourite pieces.
Alice with the Gryphon and Mock Turtle - the most classic illustrations of the trio in my opinion.
John Tenniel, Arthur Rackham, Lewis Carroll
Happy Birthday, Lewis Carroll! Thank you forever for bringing us to Wonderland!
Cuddly Rigor Mortis, aka artist Kristin Tercek (previously featured here) made this awesome double-sided Cheshire Cat ornament whose signature grin glows in the dark. The piece was made for Through the Looking Glass, an art ornament show hosted by the Artist Sisters: CJ Metzger and Miss Mindy at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland in Los Angeles.
