The White Rabbit restaurant and bar, located on the 16th floor of 3 Smolenskaya Square, is the epitome of dining elegance. Currently ranked #18 in the World’s Fifty Best Restaurants™ (by The Diners Club), “As the name may suggest, the restaurant whimsically embraces an Alice In Wonderland theme – think lots of rabbits and rococo furniture.” There is much to admire in its spectacular decor, and for the 150th anniversary last year they had a weekly “Alice in Wonderland gastronomic performance” at the Gastrobar.
“I suppose I ought to eat or drink something or other; but the great question is ‘What?'”

Those amazing folks at Artists’ Choice Editions have done it again!
“With the advent of Glasnost, in the late ’80s, there was a resurgence of illustrated editions of Lewis Carroll’s Alice books. We are happy to publish the first English language edition of a survey of the vast array published from Azerbaijan to Vladivostok, most of which have never been seen in the West before.
“The book is 176 pages with 170 b/w and colour illustrations. It includes a Checklist of more than sixty illustrated books. There are two editions, both numbered and bound in a Continental style binding. The Standard of 160 copies is £96.00. The Special Edition of 48 copies includes a folder with four original signed and numbered Aqua-tints by internationally known Ukrainian printmakers, a copy of the book 1/4 bound in leather, all in a solander box. £540.00”

Well, we knew he was a genius but this takes him to a whole new level! Columnist Ben Bowie of The Guardian write in his article about an upcoming documentary with Dr Hawking:
Don’t know about you, but I gotta see pictures from that party 🙂
The entire texts of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland plus 49 other literary classics from Aesop to Lovecraft in 128 pages? Well, yes it’s oversize (10¼” x 15″), but the secret is that each book or story is complete on one page (in very small type)! A magnifying glass is included, and gaps in the text provide an accompanying image (such as that of Holmes on the cover, left, or our Alice, right). The magicians are the fine folks at Postertext in Vancouver, gathered together by the equally fine folks at Chronicle Books. More details here.
Interest in Lewis Carroll and his works continues to grow! New to me, but originally founded in the 1970s is the Dutch Lewis Carroll Society – Lewis Carroll Genootschap.
