From Tuesday 31st May at 14 Cecil Court, WC2 (near Leicester Square tube)Alice Through The Looking Glass will exhibit for the first time ever Alice’s actual Looking-Glass.
A chance to see yourself reflected as Alice HERSELF did
in a glass whose allure remains undiminished by the ravages of time.
A unique piece of British literary history imbued with beauty and an enduring sense of mystery.
Alice Liddell, Lewis Carroll’s muse and the eponymous heroine of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ & ‘Through The Looking-Glass’ owned this mirror for most of her life.
Its similarity to John Tenniel’s original illustration is remarkable. Also on exhibition will be: Sir John Tenniel’s very own ‘Through The Looking-Glass’ hand-painted Chessboard. This unique and important Carrollian artefact has 16 original illustrations that depict the books’ main characters including Humpty Dumpty, The Red Queen, Jabberwocky and more.
