A high-resolution bitmap artwork containing the entire text of Wonderland in the shape of Alice herself can be found here. The text is broken down into words whose frequency determines their size in the finished image. Add a bit of artistic creativity, and voila! Mad hats off to creative developer Kris Temmerman, who created this image.
And now, Alice speaks Yiddish! A fine new translation of Wonderland using the Hebrew alphabet by Dr. Adina bar-El is now available for $25 including shipping via PayPal or check or cash. Email email@example.com or write to:

We’ve just received the following note about a new indie music effort and Indiegogo campaign:
I’m writing because my band is recording an album of poem-song adaptations from “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass.” We’ve already recorded half the tracks, and we launched an Indiegogo album pre-sale campaign on May 4th to raise the funds needed cover the costs of additional recording, mixing, mastering, and duplication. Our album, “Contrariwise,” will be released on November 4th. I hope you’ll consider posting a link to our Indiegogo page, where we have a letter describing the project in more detail, as well as a 4 minute video that includes snippets fromrough demos of our versions of “Jabberwocky,” “Beautiful Soup,” “Queen Alice,” and others:http://igg.me/at/Contrariwise

From the “just when you thought you’d seen it all” department, along with the “Gee, I just don’t know what to do with this $36K burning a whole in my expensive pants pocket” department, comes this costly bauble: a diamond-studded mushroom charm that houses a 32 gigabyte flash drive. The designer claims the look was “inspired by the classic novel Alice in Wonderland.” We couldn’t make this stuff up. But someone did–and they’re selling it.

At our recent Winston-Salem meeting, we heard briefly from Ms. Amber Adams, a choreographer and dancer hoping to raise funds to finance a physical theatre program based on “Alice in Wonderland” in Wilmington, NC. As always, we make no comment or endorsement of anything we post per se; we just like to keep you informed!
