Alice in Wonderland

I wrote here that Alice was underrepresented in my albums. I wasn't asking for postcards, but two of my friends are kind enough to look for Alice's postcards and stamps for me (even if they aren't very fond of this book).

John (the UK) sent me two postcards with one of the most know chapters of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland: A Mad Tea-Party with The Hatter and The March Hare. It is really nice to have two versions of this illustration!




They arrived with matched stamps depicting Alice and The Hatter (again) and another favourite: the Cheshire Cat.





Heleen (the Netherlands) bought this postcard for me because of the tea cups. Then she realised that here Choo choo looks a lot like Alice:


The funny think is that I thought at first sight that the stamps depict the Queen of Hearts... And then I discovered that they represent the donor-patient relationship, and were issued in honour of 400,000 blood donors in the Netherlands!

  2. L'exlibris que li vaig regalar a ma mare el vaig comprar en aquella botigueta de cartes i objectes relacionats que et va agradar tant. És el conill que mira el rellotge perquè sempre fa tard. Jo li vaig comprar perquè li agrada Alícia però s'hi va sentir identificada perquè com que ve a casa a dinar sempre mira el rellotge per no fer tard a l'escola :D

    1. Aquell conill em recorda una amic meu que em deia: ·En la ciudad hay que tener prisa" (?). Em posa nerviosa! :D

  3. I'm glad to see the circular franking on the stamps - it means my request to the Post Office to use the hand stamp is working. (The main reason is that putting them through the franking machine so often damages the front of the cards.)
