ALICE

in WONDERLAND

a collection of books


a classic story by lewis carroll

There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, and the other two were using it as a cushion, resting their elbows on it, and talking over its head. `Very uncomfortable for the Dormouse,’ thought Alice; `only, as it’s asleep, I suppose it doesn’t mind.’ The table was a large one, but the three were all crowded together at one corner of it: `No room! No room!’ they cried out when they saw Alice coming. `There’s plenty of room!’ said Alice indignantly, and she sat down in a large arm-chair at one end of the table.


Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (January 27, 1832 – January 14, 1898), better known by the pseudonym Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican deacon and photographer. His most famous writings are Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass, as well as the poems “The Hunting of the Snark” and “Jabberwocky”, all examples of the genre of literary nonsense. He is noted for his facility at word play, logic, and fantasy, and there are societies dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of his works and the investigation of his life in many parts of the world, including the United Kingdom, Japan, the United States, and New Zealand.

CHRISTIAN PERKINS

“Lewis Carroll, real name, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, wrote and illustrated the first version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland in 1865 for a family friend’s young daughter. At that time, opium was a very popular drug and was widely available. With the design of this version of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, I wanted to capture the spontaneity and energy of a book that was penned by hand, by an author that may or may not have been on drugs. My illustrations are zany and wild, full of energy to reflect the Carroll’s imaginative scenes and mad characters. The text is crooked, and disorderly to further this idea. The whole concept behind my design is that the author picked up this blank book with crow quill pen and ink bottle in hand and in one golden afternoon, spewed out this classic in children’s literature.” 8 x 10 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1717469 $64.95

TENIA WALLACE

Alice in Wonderland is a very inspiring and creative book. When a reader picks it up they can use their own imagination and infuse it into the story. Within this book you will see a different view of Alice and her surroundings. All of the characters are custom illustrated and are infused with vector designs. The illustrations will open up a new world of Alice in Wonderland.

CHRISTINA LONGHURST

Lewis Carroll’s original story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland inspired this ‘cookie-cutter’ version of Alice and the assorted acquaintances that transpire. Not only do the illustrations in this book directly reflect the initial overall look of each character, making them ‘cookie-cutter’ characters, but they have literally become cut out characters. However, multiple characteristics, personalities, & behaviors can be and have been interpreted from each character in the story. This representation is reflected in the two layers of cut out pages for each three page illustration that precedes each chapter.

CAMELA TUBBS

In this version of Alice in Wonderland I had fun making it is entertaining and exciting for kids, and for adults both. Overlayed on top of each image are multiple illustrations from the original book. Each image focuses on contrasting colors and making you feel slightly peculiar yet intriguing just like the content of the book does.

ARI LAMB

Alice is a child of many layers. Her adventures, thoughts and actions are organic and at times unexpected. Though the sequence of events throughout her journey seem strange, there is meaning and depth being many of her moments. She is taught to solve, dream, and look beyond the ordinary as the characters surround her in a world rich and full of detail. The illustrations in Ari Lamb’s design of Wonderland pull you into the chaos and intricacy of a world difficult to understand and intense with beauty. 7 x 7 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1717509 $66.95

DANELLE CHENEY

This version of Alice in Wonderland was derived from the theme of games that is present throughout the story. The playing card soldiers, croquet, as well as the word and mind games all play an important role. The book as an object looks like a stack of playing cards. The title and drop cap in each chapter are custom-lettered by hand.

JADE GELESKY

“The idea for my book was to use color and texture through watercolor, to help the reader become more imaginative with the whimsical nature of the text. I hope that when the reader is going through the imagery and text they are able to be transported to another place where their own imagination can be awakened and the story can come alive for them.� 8 x 10 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1717438 $64.95

JAY MERRYWEATHER

Change and identity play a critical theme in Lewis Carroll’s, “Alice in Wonderland.” Alice begins her journey a young naive girl unencumbered by worry and responsibility. Her fall into a seemingly harmless hole chasing after the imaginatively proper White Rabbit begins a shift of change in Alice. She is then faced with varying obstacles that both physically and mentally move her toward a better understanding of her metamorphosis from child to woman. This evolution is the crucible of Carroll’s story of Alice and of Jay Merryweather’s design of this timeless masterpiece.

J.J. EMBLETON

The 1865 novel, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. With this nonsensical theme, it is a great story to look at in a different light. Considering this book with different ideas, the illustrations and designs have given a deeper and more serious adult feel to Alice’s situation. 8 x 10 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1608675 $72.95

KATIE POLONI

This version of Alice in Wonderland features a new twist on the original images by Lewis Carroll. By applying different patterns and colors to the originals, I was able to create a new version of how alice experienced her adventures in Wonderland. 7 x 7 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1717868 $74.95

KAITLIN SCHAFER

When I was creating this book, I wanted to create something that feels like home when you pick it up. Using colors and textures to create certain emotions that go with each chapter of the book. I liked using my hands for this project and creating illustrations out of scrapbook paper.

KIMBERLY SHELBY

This world is ours to discover and just like our imaginations, it is endless and full of possibilities. There is perfection, disappointment, joy and pain with every step we take. But what we really remember is when we stood and the world seemed to pull itself together just for that moment, just for us and it is flawless. 10 x 8 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1717694 $51.95

KINDAL ERICKSON

“In 1864 John Tenniel illustrated the first images for ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ using woodblock prints. I wanted to use these stark illustrations to represent the history of the book, but make them my own based on what I learned from Lewis Carroll’s writings. My reading surprised me with abstracted but inspiring ideas which I reflected in rich black and white lace in combination with color and the original imagery, creating my version of wonderland.” 7 x 7 hardcover http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1717769 $74.95

TYCE JONES

“The concept for this book is based on the relationship between the two worlds and how they exist together. The beginning starts in a realistic environment and ventures its way to an abstract, bizarre reality. The book ends with Alice coming back to her sensible world and realizing that she has matured through the experience. The book is illustrated with black, two dimensional objects to portray a visual relationship between the two worlds.�
