2011 Calender with Iassen Ghiuselev's new Looking-Glass Illustrations

Iassen Ghiuselev’s beautiful illustrations for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland were published by Simply Read Books in 2003 & will be re-issued in March 2010. (For obvious reasons, are we expecting a lot of timely reissues?) Ghiuselev creates a large Escher-esque poster from which smaller bits are extracted for the individual pages of the book. His Through the Looking-Glass, pictured above, is not yet released, but a 2011 Calender (list price $13.95) is now available for pre-order by Simply Read. (There was a similar such thing with his AAIW in 2007, now hard to find.)

Susan Sanford's homage to Alice and Edward

Northern California artist Susan Sanford has created a 2010 calendar with some very clever images: “Alice’s adventures in Wonderland reimagined as if Tenniel’s illustrations had leaped out of the book and were adventuring in the rose gardens and antique stores in the real world.”

Also, don’t miss her homage to Alice and Edward Gorey. (Hmm, and why *didn’t* that combination ever happen? He illustrated Dracula after all…)
