White Rabbit (again)

I think Dylan Thomas said something about the chains of time... Here's the original post, I think I'm going to set the images from the two series on the facing pages and vary which one I emphasize.

I suppose they hung heavy on the welsh rarebit.

Fabuloso old watch!

again, evokes the story, and more. creates (for me) a story of someone very old rereading a book they read when very young, laying down their watch on the page, closing their eyes.

I love the white rabbit character & he is always so well dressed!

Is this what you call sepia"? (I am not familiar with art - colors, hues, techniques, etc)

I think it's wonderful to have a colorful, crispy version and an "antique" (sepia?) one.

That the olden version is more attached to the book (as object) is also a brilliant idea. I am so curious to see the result in a book!

This is a great picture.

In my imagination the image of the original post kind of comes from a child fancing how the rabbit could look like, how could a rabbit appear in a garden and where the hole... etc. With this other image I fancy that child already grown-up, re-reading Alice, not necessarily wondering about the rabbit itself, but about time. Time. It´s like a box of mirrors.

A "Westclox" watch? It's wonderful. The two look very nice together.

Lovely image. A new take on Tenniel.

The tones in this are fantastic - watch and text and illustration melting to each other.
