In July of 1862, Lewis Carroll (a pseudonym for Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) breathed life into a long story told to a young child named Alice Liddell and her sisters while they spent time together at a picnic. Fascinated by the tale, the young Alice implored Carroll to write it down, and the basis for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (now often referred to in it's abbreviated form Alice in Wonderland) was written. Through the Looking Glass, and What Alice Found There was a sequel which quickly followed.
This shy logician & mathematician turned novelist gave Victorians an instant children's literature classic which has now become beloved by children and adults worldwide. Carroll used the surrealistic settings of his fantasy world to question the commonly accepted ways of thinking. These stories have fascinated generations, giving rise to inspiration for artists, musicians, political essayists and authors in nearly every culture.
We are so pleased and proud to present an exceptional find for our Alice in Wonderland Collectors. This exemplary rendition for the needle artist features crewel embroidery interpretations of John Tenniel's original illustrations which accompanied Lewis' fantasy tales. For Serious collectors, this masterpiece is a way to share in the re-creation of the magical moments that Alice has during her Adventures. From the moment she spies the Timely Rabbit, until the moment she awakens to tell her sister of her curious dreams, this brilliant collection embodies the spirit of the characters and tale. Be sure to see all the pieces of this exciting, vintage, rare, and long out of production series we've been able to procure for our avid needleartistry collectors.
"....So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy- chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.
There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, `Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!' (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat- pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge....."
