Unsuk Chin

Unsuk Chin programme from the Bayerische Staatsoper: world premiere in Munich (June 2007).

With text (in German), photos, music manuscript, costume and set designs, and the libretto (in English).

The scanned in picture is a bit dodgy as I don’t want to break the spine, and the front cover is plain purple, but here’s some video:

Many thanks to Jean for sending me this.

Alice in Welfareland

Alice in Welfareland by Christopher Gilmore.

Cover illustration by Alex Jackson.

Paperback published by Robin Books, 2007.

ISBN-10: 1904843328

ISBN-13: 978-1904843320

From the publisher/ author:

1984! Curious Alice, lost in a forest, falls down a rabbit-hole at Warren Row. Saved before Humpty Dumpty’s fall and an apparent nuclear accident Alice, to stretch herself, encourages many alarming adventures under ground.

Nothing is as it seems. Even though some of the quaint characters suggest the original Lewis Carroll, others sit within spitting (image) distance of well-known personages in the Blue Dome. With The Queen, Margaret Thatcher, Hitler and the Boss of Ofsted as Humpty Dumpty…!

State welfare shortcomings are parodied as are the hippy ideals of the Survivalists in their reclaimed nuclear bunkers. Alice is challenged by the sub-terrestrial squatters. Also by the psychic Humphrey, the plump computer buff for whom she falls. Together, they try to outwit the wicked Police Commissioner before he grabs the Vril Rod of Power held by King Kal of the Underworld, in Rainbow Mountain.

Breathless safaris in and out of time and space flourish as different forms of Alice are chased by giant eye-less Grossocks, battered by Pubes, mangled by an astral Alchemist, befriended by dwarfs in the Flying Flute, entombed in a shrinking Pyramid, the final battle raging around the helpless Alice.

Warfare finally confronts Welfare as the Scars V Saffs try to annihilate each other, augmented by earthquakes, radiation leaks and occult weapons. Will Alice and Humphrey make it? And before Alice, the amazing Time Traveler, meets her stam-m-ering little girl admirer, that tall storyteller on Oxford’s riverbank, Charles L. Dodgson…?

Further effervescent questions are explored in this exciting and funny new novel faction.

Princess Alyss of Wonderland by Frank Beddor.

Artists: Catia Chien and Vance Kovacs.

Published by Dial Books, 2007.

This is rather a cute thing- designed as a scrap-book, with flaps to lift and envelopes to open and maps to unfold. It covers the same ground as The Looking Glass Wars: the adventures of Alyss Heart after leaving Wonderland.

Synopsis from the publisher:

Enter the exciting world of the real Alyss of Wonderland! Behold the stunning proof that the fictitious little girl you have known as Alice was actually a very real little princess named Alyss. Assembled in this scrapbook are the collected letters, journals, and art of the princess who fled her world of wonder only to find herself alone in our world with nothing but her imagination to sustain her. Lavishly illustrated and fully interactive, this book will captivate and delight princess enthusiasts and fans of the original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

On amazon: Princess Alyss of Wonderland


Alice in Sunderland

Alice in Sunderland by Bryan Talbot.

Published 2007, by Jonathan Cape. Signed first edition, hardback.

ISBN: 978-0224080767

Described by the author as “an entertainment including numerous interesting diversions and digressions”, it’s a sort of graphic-novel-history-myth-geography-biography thing. With Lewis Carroll in it.

The illustration ranges from pen and ink to photographs, from newsprint and paintings to computer graphics.

The Cartoon Museum displayed art from the graphic novel (as well as exploring various influences) from April to July 2007, and that’s when Anna got me my signed copy 🙂
