2018 Pirelli Calendar- 45th Edition: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

2018 Pirelli Calendar 45th Edition: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: photos by Tim Walker.

Stylist: Edward Enninful

Designer: Shona Heath

The Pirelli calendar was first published in 1964, although there was a trial run with an unpublished mock-up version in 1963. Production was paused in 1974 for 10 years, but it’s been around ever since.

Until recently it’s had a reputation as a ‘glamour’ calendar, but has tried to shed the dodgy image with the use of un-airbrushed, non-made up stars in 2017. In 2018, British fashion photographer Tim Walker took inspiration from Alice, shooting in London with an all black cast.

 

Includes 28 photos of the 18 cast members.

Mad Hatter Card

s-l1600Mad Hatter Card: Bear’s Super Species School.

I can’t find out a lot about this, but it seems to be a card given away in 2015 with Bear Yoyo snacks. Collect enough, and you can play the game… I’m not sure where I got it: I think I found it somewhere, but that seems rather too random so I wonder if someone donated it.

Their website seems to be skating on the edge of Rowling plagiarism, but it’s fun. I’m in Wizentail, apparently.

Back of the card gives facts about hares- apparently the mad hatter is a hare in Super Squad land.
