Return to Wonderland


As the festive season shambles into view I’ve reworked my psychedelic interpretation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from calendar to poster format for those who might prefer the latter. There are two poster sizes, the standard CafePress large and small, and the calendar is still on sale, of course. By coincidence, the dreadfully-named Syfy channel is currently running its own TV adaptation of the Lewis Carroll books. I haven’t seen Alice but the reviews I’ve read have been mixed. From the description I can’t imagine I’d enjoy it (Tim Burton’s film is the one I’m waiting for) but it shows once again how endlessly mutable the Alice stories have become.

    As noted the calendar is Wonder full. Can’t wait to give one to my graphic designer niece and for this year to roll away- so Alice can spend 365 days down the rabbit hole. Great design. la

    I happened upon your site by chance, glad I did as I discovered Salvador Dalí’s illustrations for Alice. Wonderful!

    Thanks everyone, and thanks especially to all those who’ve bought a calendar this year.
