Alice, Alice Everywhere

I had Alice (or maybe more precisely, Johnny Depp) on my mind when I wrote this month's Dear Reader, which I titled "Mad March Hare." But it's not just me. The Alice in Wonderland film (directed by Tim Burton, starring Depp) had its U.S. premiere over the weekend (it's now the #1 movie in America...). So everyone's talking Alice. Print Magazine had four designers storyboard their favorite scenes. The Private Library blog had a guest editorial about Alice. The Folio Club sent out an email about its new deluxe manuscript facsimile. Even the British Library held festivities last month.

Want to join in the Alice madness? Actually, the British Library is the best place to start. You can read about the original manuscript, leaf through it using their "Turning the Pages" software, and go down your own rabbit hole.
