Tenia Wallace Cost: $82.95 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.
Ari Lamb Cost: $66.95 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 Lambâ€™s design of Wonderland pull you into the chaos and intricacy of a world difficult to understand and intense with beauty.
Cami Tubbs Cost: $74.94 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.
Christina Longhurst Cost: $72.95 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.
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where--” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat. “--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation. “Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
Christian Perkins Cost: $64.95 “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.”
Danelle Cheney Cost: $82.95 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.
J.J Embleton Cost: $72.95 The 1865 novel, Aliceâ€™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 Aliceâ€™s situation.
The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, “Why is a raven like a writing-desk?” “Come, we shall have some fun now!” thought Alice. “I’m glad they’ve begun asking riddles. — I believe I can guess that,” she added aloud. “Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?” said the March Hare. “Exactly so,” said Alice. “Then you should say what you mean,” the March Hare went on. “I do,” Alice hastily replied; “at least--at least I mean what I say--that’s the same thing, you know.”
Jade Gelskey Cost: $64.95 â€œThe 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.â€?
Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
Jay Merryweather Cost: $74.95 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.
Katie Poloni Cost: $74.95 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.
Katie Schafer Cost: $52.95 When I was creating this book, I wanted to create something that feels like home when you pick it up. Using the 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. After all the work, Iâ€™m really proud of how this project came out, and excited for everybody to see how it turned out.
“Who are YOU?” said the Caterpillar. This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, “I--I hardly know, sir, just at present-- at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.”
Kindal Erickson Cost: $74.95 “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.”
Kim Shelby Cost: $51.95 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.
Tyce Jones Cost: $64.95 â€œThe 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.â€?
