    Ever since I was a child Alice and wonderland always struck a chord. I was that wandering child that would follow animals around the garden through the woods. Having adventures and making up stories.
    This book seems to capture the magic you feel as a child and that ability to believe in your pretend. Beautifully done.

  227. Jodie Hale /// 09.19.2015 /// 5:49am

    Andrea D’Aquino has accomplished what artists do best. She has transformed the familiar into something new and compelling. This is not easy to do–especially for something like Alice in Wonderland which has been Disneyfied and mass marketed. Thanks for featuring this terrific work.

Books like this give us a new window to experience the stories we’ve grown up with, so it never gets boring. I actually really love this idea!
