Lewis Carroll was a writer, mathematician, poet and photographer, yet he will always be remembered for Alice’s adventures in Wonderland and the creatures and beings he described therein. His vivid imagination and detailed descriptions of creatures like the Jabberwocky have inspired artists for many generations.
To mark what would have been his 181st birthday, 19 illustrators have created works based upon his writings for a week long show. The exhibition will even open with its own version of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and it should appeal to both fans of art and Carroll’s novels and poems.
Curiouser and Curiouser: An Illustrative re-imagining of the life and works of Lewis Carroll is on display at Curious Duke Gallery, 207 Whitecross St, EC1Y 8QP from 24-30 January. Admission is free.
