‘Curiouser and curiouser!’ cried Alice

I am obsessed with Alice In Wonderland, I love everything about the story, its literally my favourite book and I own a lot of versions, my oldest book dates back to 1867 (Alice was first published in 1865).

I stumbled across these playing cards and have them currently in my basket but hopped on to write this post to tell you crazy bunch 🙂

Fig. 23 Wonderland” and “Fig. 23 Looking-Glass” are companion poker-sized playing card decks designed by award-winning designer Stephen W. Brandt and manufactured in the USA by USPCC (Bicycle).

As part of the Fig. 23 brand, they feature flip-book style animation on the faces of each deck; “Wonderland” depicts Alice growing as a result of drinking from the “DRINK ME” bottle, and “Looking-Glass” depicts Alice reaching to Humpty Dumpty during his great fall. This deck not only showcases the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel but also contains customized pips designed from those within such illustrations. The backsides are stylized collections of objects found within the books, such as a key, a spoon, chess pieces, and knitting needles.
