The Art of Darkness

Carroll Meets Camille

February 17th, 2010 by Cobwebs

Mock TurtleA new gift edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has just been published, featuring the unabridged text with “a unique visual interpretation” by creepy-fantasy artist Camille Rose Garcia.

Hi-Fructose has posted some of the art from the book, along with information on west coast (U.S.) tour dates.

These are some very trippy images, and the hallucinatory quality of Carroll’s* story is front and center. I’d love a framed print of some of these illustrations.

I also love Garcia’s slightly-goth take on Alice’s costume. The bat-wing hair ribbon is adorable.

*[Pedantic footnote] You aren’t supposed to use just the last name of a pseudonym, so this should technically be either “Lewis Carroll” or “Dodgson.” To this I say phooey. [/Pedantic footnote]
