Kerry Darlington - Alice Finds the Little Door

Well, it no use your talking about waking him,' said Tweedledum, “when you're only one of the things in his dream. You know very well you're not real.”

It was all very well to say “Drink me,” but the wise little Alice was not going to do that in a hurry. “No, I’ll look first,”

Kerry Darlington's New Alice in Wonderland

Return to Wonderland! Kerry Darlington's new Alice release is here!

This Unique Edition features some of Alice's greatest icons - the 'Drink Me' potion, it's counterpart cupcake - and of course, the movers & shakers of Wonderland: The Queen of Hearts - almost as famous and influential as Alice herself - and her rather more ineffectual 'consort', the King of Hearts. Of course the White Rabbit ('William') is present and correct - a promise of much Lewis Carrollesque mayhem to come.

A Legendary Darlington Sketch Completed

Alice in Wonderland is arguably the best-loved of all Kerry's genres: the mixture of hypnagogic non-sequitur, Victorian manners and the title character's philosophical stoicism on the increasingly madcap events unfolding before her are the perfect match for Kerry's impish humour, fantastical imagination and vivid hyper-real artistic style.

The new edition not only continues this most magical of collaborations; but provides a companion piece and completion of one of the most legendary Kerry Darlington Boutique Sketches... If you loved 'Alice and the Little Door', this edition presents a continuation of that journey.

However, on the second time round, she came upon a low curtain she had not noticed before, and behind it was a little door about fifteen inches high: she tried the little golden key in the lock, and to her great delight it fitted!”

Curiouser and curiouser!” cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English).

More Kerry Darlington Preview Images to Come

Above all Alice in Wonderland editions, this particular work and its precursor sketch offers a larger scale figure study: presenting Alice in all her Victorian-gothic glory. Wonderland itself is only in the process of first being revealed to both the viewer and the celebrated protagonist. Of course, Kerry being Kerry: various infamous characters and situations will be make an appearance through highly creative and appropriately mischievous means!

Don't miss this major Kerry Darlington and Wyecliffe launch. Order now to obtain your edition!

And what is the use of a book,” thought Alice, “without pictures?”
