    Jabberwock

    Sooner or later, every illustrator gets it into his head that he can improve on Sir John Tenniel’s magnificent illustrations for Lewis Carroll’s immortal Alice books. He is always, always wrong about that. But he has to get it out of his system, so what can you do? 

    This scene depicts the Jabberwock, with “jaws that bite” and “claws that catch.” The beamish boy (shamelessly stolen from Tenniel) stands below the creature, and his vorpal blade is soon to go “snicker-snack!” 

    The monster’s name appears below in Anglo-Saxon letters. It is backwards because we are, of course, in Looking-Glass Land.
