A set of 6 posters from the Alice in Wonderland / Through the Looking Glass exhibition held at the Ranger’s House on Blackheath in 1973.
There seems to be little to nothing online about this exhibition online but it was fantastic, especially if you were 6 years old. You literally walked though life size recreations of the original Tenniel illustrations – I remember peering into the treacle well to see the three girls living down it, the massive Jabberwocky and the White Knight…
Considering the exhibition went to great lengths to be faithful to the original Tenniel illustrations, the posters sold there were by an otherwise unknown Alice illustrator – John Minnion. Who also designed the flyer…
Online blurb ” John Minnion is largely self-taught as an artist. In the early 1970s, as he later recalled, he was “making a living from selling his Alice in Wonderland posters”, and developed this work by producing and selling his own versions of Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky (1973) and The Hunting of the Snark (1976).”
Condition : 38cm x 50cm The posters were mounted onto black board using masking tape. While they have been removed there is a residue stain on the reverse in each corner, which doesn’t show through to the front. There are no pin holes or other sings of display. Minor handling – No significant creasing. Each print is singed in green ink by the artist in the bottom right hand corner.
