Alice Is Living In My Mailbox (I)

Or I think so, because of the many times she appears...!




Two gouaches from 1951, by Mary Blair. Sent by Bryon (the USA).






A Manga-ish version sent by Helen (Japan).




An unseen (I mean, by unseen by me) version of Alice's tea sent by Elena (Italy).


Sometimes the White Rabbit appears even on the back of the envelopes...

  1. I'm beginning to like Alice now that I see so much different versions! Thank you for sharing and for increasing my interest :-)
    The manga version is nive and interesting (and also a bit scary), too!

    2. You're going to see more versions in this blog during the next days (including something from you!). I must say that the different illustrations of Alice raise more interest in me that the story itself.

    3. I still think this should be your next mail art call project.

    I have one of another style too that I thought about sending, but decided to keep for Postcrossing. It isn't a manga style like these.

    It's really interesting seeing how different countries interpret Alice.

    1. Thanks for the links, I enjoyed looking at these Alices. I'm not very familiar with the manga style.
