These two beautiful and enigmagic drawings by Michel Villars announces a twist in Alice in Wonderland. The first image shows the moment when she falls in love with the most beautiful garden ever seen. But she doesn't manage to access it this time. Many things must happen before she enters again in the room of doors and manage how to transform herself using the magic devices, the bottle and the key, to be in the right size, the right time and the right place to enter into the garden. She must to learn how to be empowered of her own transformations. The first time she enters in this room is just after falling into the first portal: the rabbit hole, and in the second time, she crosses a portal in the trunck of a magic tree...
"Alice’s first thought was that it might belong to one of the doors of the hall; but, alas! either the locks were too large, or the key was too small, but at any rate it would not open any of them. However, on the second time round, she came upon a low curtain she had not noticed before, and behind it was a little door about fifteen inches high: she tried the little golden key in the lock, and to her great delight it fitted!
Alice opened the door and found that it led into a small passage, not much larger than a rat-hole: she knelt down and looked along the passage into the loveliest garden you ever saw. How she longed to get out of that dark hall, and wander about among those beds of bright flowers and those cool fountains, but she could not even get her head through the doorway; “and even if my head would go through,” thought poor Alice, “it would be of very little use without my shoulders. Oh, how I wish I could shut up like a telescope! I think I could, if I only knew how to begin.” For, you see, so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible."

"Just as she said this, she noticed that one of the trees had a door leading right into it. “That’s very curious!” she thought. “But everything’s curious today. I think I may as well go in at once.” And in she went.
Once more she found herself in the long hall, and close to the little glass table. “Now, I’ll manage better this time,” she said to herself, and began by taking the little golden key, and unlocking the door that led into the garden. Then she went to work nibbling at the mushroom (she had kept a piece of it in her pocket) till she was about a foot high: then she walked down the little passage: and then—she found herself at last in the beautiful garden, among the bright flower-beds and the cool fountains."

who is the collector?
"Hi! I’m Daisy, I have rather a lot of books, and I run this site. ツ Personally, I consider myself a ‘book lover’ rather than a collector, because a true collector keeps their books pristine and beautiful and invests with an eye for potential reselling; whereas although I do hoard my treasures like a dragon (and maybe display them on my shelves like the proud trophies of a deranged serial killer), I also read them, fondle them and evangelise their merits to anyone brave enough to enter my orbit."
Pranita Kocharekar is an artist based out of Mumbai, India. Besides commercial projects, she also run an online shop to sell her art. (Shop here!)
In this alicedelic design project Pranita plays with iconic elements of Alice in Wonderland and the letters embody characters and objects like peaces of a nonsensical game.
"Alice In Wonderland is my favourite book since childhood and I chose to design a typeface to show my gratitude to Sir Lewis Carroll for giving me a whimsical book to get lost in when the world felt too mainstream. Imagination has no bounds. And that is something I wanted to portray through my typeface, targeting not only children but also adults." Pranita

"Early in 2018 Robert Ingpen completed a mural which is now donated by him to the National Library of Australia under the Cultural Arts Program of Australia. The large painting depicts a bookcase without any books. The shelves are filled with characters from classical stories who, through the imagination of the illustrator, are borrowed from the pages of books where they traditionally belong. Robert Ingpen was filmed and recorded while creating this mural."source
