Wonder Wonderland by Ayres Houghtelling


“Alice in Wonderland” by Ayres Houghtelling (b. 1912). Alice is pictured at least 24 times in this 19″ x 25.5″ print as she makes her way through all the major events of the book. This print was created in 1947, and was the centerfold in Colliers magazine.

Ayres was also famous for many things, one being the drawing out of the NYC subway plans. This image also reveals a complex spacial conception. From that we can imagine an Wonderland subway plan showing multiple and interconnected paths.
