Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Stickfiguratively Speaking)

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (Stickfiguratively Speaking), retold and illustrated by Jamison Odone.

Published by PublishingWorks, 2010. Hardback.

I really like this version- a shortened version of the text is interspersed with Alice’s own (slightly petulant) pronouncements. She’s fab.

From the publishers:

Literary nonsense turns to whimsical imagery with a macabre twist in the pen-and-ink drawings of Jamison Odone. Stick figures have never emoted this much energy as each page brings a certain curiosity to a new light in this deconstruction of Lewis Carroll’s classic. Starkly black and white, these stick characters are as much a quandary as their literary, cartoon and theatre counterparts ever were. Omitting much of the melodic verbiage of the original, STICKFIGURATIVELY SPEAKING creates a simple variation with an exquisitely sophisticated twist that’s already being compared to Edward Gorey.

Jamison Odone himself says:

“This all happened so fast and the drawings and writing became a marathon of work within a three month span of sleepless nights, gallons of coffee and plenty of re-runs of House. I’m quite proud of this book and the series as a whole. Everybody knows the story of Alice and the perfect drawings of John Tenniel, my goal with the first book in the series was to do something completely different from the Victorian eloquence of the Tenniel drawings, and make the story my own. I have done this book with an extreme amount respect for Carroll and Tenniel and I am proud to say that this version of Alice, truly looks like no other.”
