Alice In Wonderland

This interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” is intended for an audience that is already familiar or at least somewhat familiar with the story, that would be attracted to a new, more visually dynamic interpretation of the story.

The very first paragraph of the novel features the quote, “‘and what is the use of a book,’ thought Alice ‘without pictures or conversation?’” Which serves as the premise for the design of this piece: highlighting the importance of pictures and conversation (or otherwise significant passages from the story).

This concept is demonstrated in the design by highlighting important passages on each page, as well as featuring silhouettes of notable characters and visuals which are filled in with bright, colourful watercolour-inspired patterns. This visual style is intended to represent Alice’s own creativity/imagination, and her visual interpretation of this world she has created (or possibly thinks she has created).

(This is an academic piece.)
