Great, but I prefer the black and white original ones, so we can imagine the colors we like ^^

I quite like the colourised picture of Tenniels illustrations but those ones seem a little too bright. I prefer them with a more muted hue. But the book looks neat :-)

I'm in agreement, the backgrounds are a little jarring (of course, I'm used to the color version I have, so maybe that's why).

The only colourisations I can stand are the ones in The Nursery Alice.

I totally agree. The Nursery Alice is a great book in general... once I found it at a library... that was cool....

(As you can see, I'm a bit sleepy... that's why I'm overusing the ellipses...)

These feel too digitally colored, and lack the warmth and depth of the water colored versions. In my most humble of opinions.

I completely agree, White Night.

You mean like this one?

Postby Anastasius » Sat Jul 31, 2010 2:54 pm

I mean this one:

As you can see in the little book trailer on that page, the illustrations are softer than those in the flippable preview.
AIW:-)
