Back in July I learned about a special display at the University of Maryland at College Park of various editions of Alice in Wonderland that were collected by a devoted fan. I managed to get there to check it out in person shortly before the exhibit closed for good.

Late last month I found another Alice in Wonderland display of a different sort that’s currently located in a glass enclosure located on the lower level of the Greenbelt Library. It consists of needlepoint and small statues of the various characters from the book. An artist named Richard Starr did the sculptures but there were no labels on who did the needlepoint. I don’t know how long this display will be up so if you’re an Alice in Wonderland fan who happens to be in the Washington, DC area, you can click here for directions on how to get to the Greenbelt Library.
