These days, we’re all seeing our beloved Victorian era (but let’s face it, timeless) Alice books retold using various forms of cutting edge technology. Here’s another example, this time from Adobe, that plays with special CSS (cascading style sheet, for non-developer folks) tags to tell the story in a stylish, web-based environment. You will note that the graphic design is quite distinctive, as well. Alice looks like a cross between a goth bobby-soxer and a dominatrix. And the caterpillar with the hookah–well, I confess the image did make me think “hookah” when I saw it! 😉
Regardless of what you think of the project’s success in telling the Wonderland story well, it’s technically impressive. And it’s always fun to see that Lewis Carroll’s works continue to inspire people all over the globe. (If the video doesn’t show below, try reloading this page in your browser.)
