OHP: Pins in Honor of Lewis Carroll's Upcoming Birthday
If you're following me on Tumblr, then you survived yesterday's barrage of Lord Byron posts in honor of the English Romantic poet's January 22nd birthday. New day, new author bombardment.
Sunday the 27th will be the birthday of the Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name Lewis Carroll. These images were inspired by his most well-known books, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.
One of my favorite non-Alice poems by Lewis Carroll is "The Hunting of the Snark." If you haven't read it, you definitely should, 'cause it's hilarious. (Spoiler alert: the snark is a boojum.)
