Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

  • Genre: Classics
  • File Size: 11300642 Bytes


Includes Sir John Tenniel’s classic illustrations, along with a gallery of art from six different artists’ interpretations! Mix equal parts creativity, bewilderment, and complete nonsense and you have Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. On a day that begins like any other, Alice notices a rabbit—a rabbit with a pocket watch. She chases after it and stumbles down a hole… and keeps falling and falling and falling. That’s when things start to get weird. She encounters a bizarre cast of characters — the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, a pipe-smoking caterpillar, the Pigeon, a Duchess, the Cook, and the decapitation-happy Queen of Hearts. It’s an adventure of completely intolerable logic, as witty as it is completely insane....

Winking in Wunderland Book Description :

This short story, naughtily titled as Winking in Wunderland, is a caustic satire that mocks at the duplicitous wink-and-nudge goings-on in the world of media and mass communication, banking and business. Understandably, Winking in Wunderland jabbingly alludes to the politics of winking and goes out audaciously to link winking to the business of media, particularly of print publications and television. As you read this short satire, you can feel the plot taking a potshot at the unmistakable pretensions by lifting the curtain of winking. This short story, you will be surprised to appreciate, lifts the veil on how mediamen wink their way to construct their winky ‘stories’ for broadcasting and publishing. This satirical short story happens in Wunderl...

Wunderland Book Description :

"Something strange is going on in the photographs by Frank Kunert: the table set for two has been so cleverly built around a corner that neither of the diners has to see the other, yet they can both watch their own television. Or a desk has a built-in bed for the much-desired office nap. And the outdoor toilet is located further away than one might hope for in an emergency - namely, on the moon. Kunert, a model builder and photographer, creates images of this kind in weeks of painstaking attention to detail, lending expression to the grotesque outgrowths of civilized life that is as humorous and exhilirating as it is profound. The ambivalence between tragedy and humour piques the artist time and again and permeates his surreal-looking visual worlds i...
