"Wonderland" inspired collage

Lewis Carroll strikes again: Apparently "Alice in Wonderland" inspired some Victorian aristocrats to move beyond scrapbooking into collage. Off with the heads of their friends and family... onto watercolor paintings. Outstanding.

The Met is hosting an exhibition organized by the Art Institute of Chicago called "Playing with Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage." If I weren't up to my chin in Artfest and book signing prep, I'd totally go to this exhibition. Okay, if I were in New York and weren't up to my chin in prep work...

If you're within driving distance of the Met, go for me and let me know what it's like!
