I'm a bit obsessed with Alice and the universe Lewis Carroll invented for her... actually I'm a bit obsessed with Lewis Carroll too.

There have been at least two previous Alice in Wonderland swaps, and a Dark Side of Wonderland one too... all have been successful and in my opinion rather wonderful.

Here are the Galleries

So, who would be up for something similar? The two books, and the various interpretations and off-shoots over the years, allow so much scope for crafting!

Obviously there is the original book and the Disney film for starters... and the many other film and animated versions... plus there are tea parties, Frank Beddor's
Looking Glass Wars and Seeing Red, Jeff Noon's Automated Alice, Lewis Carroll himself, Alice Liddell and Oxford, music and art inspired by the story and the various theories about what the book means (I've heard various philosophical theories, and plenty of drug centred ones).

Wonderland can be bright and innocent, or dark and stange - there is plenty of potential for Wonderland to be whatever you want to be, whether you are just familar with the Disney film or whether you've seen the Opera, ballet and many adaptions like me.

So, who would be up for it?

I'll set the Jabberwocky on you if you aren't enthusiastic enough Smiley

Our lovely organiser dragonmama has suggested we have sign ups from October 25 to November 7 and send outs December 8.

If there is a great public out cry against those dates then there may be flexibility, but thats what we're working to at the moment. Let dragonmama (or myself) know if there are any problems.

I might be up for this one, depending on when it is. Smiley  I do so love Alice and all the creatures in Wonderland as well as L.C. - could there be a more interesting and mysterious author?

I think this would be fab! Hopefully it doesn't take off for a bit so I can get settled into school.

I'd probably join depending on how much time/money I have at the time. I was in the first one like 3 years ago and I've been wanting to do another one. Alice in Wonderland is seriously like my favorite thing ever.

I'm certainly not up for starting this swap right now, I need a rest (and to finish unpacking my house after moving - its taking an age).

I was thinking maybe mid September as a starting date, although pushing that back to the end of September would be ok too. I'm happy to organise, although I'm also totally happy for dragonmama to do it. Similarly I'm happy to help dragonmama out as co-organiser. Just as long as its goes ahead really.

I wouldn't imagine this wouldn't be a huge swap, maybe one large (or two mediums) and a scattering of smalls? However, the exact details are probably up to the organiser (whoever that may be).

This livejournal community http://community.livejournal.com/storybookalice/
has loads of Alice related artwork. Its pretty inspiring.

I especially like this box of specimins and artefacts collected from wonderland
