Yay for Alice

Like everyone else I'm soooo looking forward to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland! It's sure to be absolutely crazy wonderful. (images and interesting interview with Burton here)

I also just found these classic images (over here) by Sir John Tenniel from "Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There", 1871, by Lewis Carroll.
I have been seeing these images everywhere recently, in jewellery, brooches, art, all sorts of things. It's a beautiful thing when art that is over a hundred years old is still so popular and evocative today.

And from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", 1865

And the king of illustration: Arthur Rackham's vision of Alice and the white rabbit
