Thanks for joining us as we spend a few days chatting about the wonderfully beautiful ALICE IN WONDERLAND companion book written by Mark Salisbury!

Since the book was released a month later than planned, I'll be posting some photos to help those who haven't gotten their copy yet.

Let's start by talking about these photos that were posted by Mr. Salisbury on his own blog: http://marksalisbury.blogspot.com/

All of these are great stand alone photos and terrific examples of the "eye candy" in the book.

What do you all have to say about them? Please share some thoughts....

I love the book and everything in it. smile.gif I knew that I would not get disappointed by the book because the last one of him "Sweeney Todd" was also amazing. applause.gif
It is so interesting to get to see an exclusive look how this movie was made. How much work is in it. wub.gif
Always excited to get his new book. And I am glad I have this one aswell! thumbsup.gif

Since this is a visual companion, was there anything that the photos helped to define about the movie?

I agree--the pics in the book are stunning & so interesting to see some of the illustrations, too.

Photo 1-the cover pic--beautiful--Mia really has a great "look" about her that shows determination to me

Photo 2-The description for these pics say "Painting on the Red Queen's castle walls"--they sure do fit her character tongue.gif She's all about power & those claws on the beasts just seem to fit her demand for power. You may bring this up later Karen, but I believe in the Red Queen section of the book, HBC talked about her "look" being based partly on Queen Elizabeth 1--that pic on the right reminds me of her for some reason.

Photo 3-I LOVED these BTScenes photos---the person lying on the floor--was that supposed to be one of the monkeys that holds the furniture? I don't recall who the person to the right of Johnny, kneeling on the floor was supposed to be. I didn't realize that so much of the lady with the fake nose was CGI? It almost looks like Johnny & Helena are the most "normal" people in the shot-lol.

Photo 4-Ok-eyeballs & cut off fingers=Time Burton! His love of the "dark" side of things shows up in these props. However, I found it odd they were in the White Queen's castle---which shows she wasn't all sweetness & light, even though she reminded me of the good witch from the Wizard of Oz.

Photo 5-First--I loved how they put an Oraculum inside the cover jacket of the book & we can just glimpse Johnny as the MHatter to the left.
I liked how they used a real set for the shot of the "tall" Alice as I thought that was all CGI. On the back cover of the book they show the "set" she was in when they took that pic. Even though I knew it was "fake" I thought the way they handled the different sizes of Alice very well done & just flowed with the movie.

Good point about those examples! I was really "amused" that the "butter fingers" (I think they were called) were used by the White Queen...and the look that she had when smelling them was priceless.

I liked the photos Mark used in his page as I think they showed aspects of the main characters in unusual ways!
