It’s Not a Dream: 18 Works of Alice in Wonderland Art

It’s been over 150 years since Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published. There are over 150 different illustrated versions of the book. And the love, obsession, popularity–whatever you want to call it–is not dying down. At this point I think every product and celebration imaginable has been given the Wonderland theme. Whether it’s the characters, trippy story, quotable sentences, Disney movie, or the creative imagination that went into the original work it especially seems to speak to artists.

As someone who is always attracted to anything and everything creative I love seeing the many different interpretations of Wonderland. And I love trying to guess whether the work seems inspired by Tim Burton’s movie, the Disney cartoon, the original illustration, or Carroll’s writing. This isn’t even a drop in the pool of tears of Alice in Wonderland Art but here are 18 works I found worthy of pinning:

If you’ve still not had enough Alice–is there such a thing?– there are more works by “lowbrow” artist in Book-Inspired Paintings. And it isn’t rare to find a Wonderland themed product in Book Fetish.
