#Unboxing Bookishly Classic Crate - The Alice In Wonderland Edition!

Last month, the fabulous Bookishly announced that their Classic Crate for January 2019 would be the Alice In Wonderland edition! How could I not treat myself to one of those?!  I adore anything Alice related so my order went in straight away!

And now the box of Wonderland goodies has arrived - and it's even better than I could have imagined!  So I thought I'd share with you what I got - and to let you know that their February Crate is a Jane Eyre edition..... just in case you're interested!  Pre-order link here 

Here's a closer look at everything!

A set of gorgeous cards - that I might need to frame and keep myself!

And then two books - 

Lewis Carroll - O Frabjous Day - Little Black Classic Version

'I cried, "Come, tell me how you live!"
And thumped him on the head.'

Conjuring wily walruses, dancing lobsters, a Jabberwock and a Bandersnatch, Carroll's fantastical verse gave new words to the English language.

And a beautiful edition of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND 😍

'Contrariwise ... if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.'

'I had sent my heroine straight down a rabbit-hole ... without the least idea what was to happen afterwards,' wrote Lewis Carroll, describing how Alice was conjured up one 'golden afternoon' in 1862 to entertain his child-friend Alice Liddell. His dream worlds of nonsensical Wonderland and the back-to-front Looking-Glass kingdom depict order turned upside-down: a baby turns into a pig, time is abandoned at a disordered tea-party and a chaotic game of chess makes a seven-year-old girl a Queen. But amongst the anarchic humour and sparkling word play, puzzles and riddles, are poignant moments of nostalgia for lost childhood. Original and experimental, the Alice books give readers a window on both child and adult worlds.
