Trinity Church in the City of Boston has produced a new guidebook that highlights and explores the art and architectural features of this historic gem. The 48-pages feature information about the principal makers of the building, its design and construction which primarily took place between 1872-1877, interior and exterior decorations, and much more. It is a visual treat with reproductions of original sketches, early watercolor paintings, as well as interior and exterior images by many fine local photographers. I am honored to have two photos in this book including this detail from John La Farge’s Purity stained glass window.

As noted at the end of the publication, the guidebook is dedicated to Edward Earl Duffy (1960-2012), a Trinity Church parishioner and tour guide who loved the building’s art and architectural legacy. The book is available for $11.95 in the church gift shop. Enjoy!

This year marked the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  There have been many articles and books written in celebration of this brilliant work.  David Day’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Decoded (2015) must be one of the most unique explorations of the book’s creation.  Day pairs the full text of the novel with a detailed analysis of how Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll) tapped his interests in mathematics, literature, religion, music and more to build a complex world for a curious little girl named Alice.

It is widely believed that the character Alice is based on Alice Liddell. Alice and her sisters Lorina, Edith and brother Harry were the children of Henry George Liddell, dean of Christ Church College, Oxford where Hodgson had been studying mathematics. He would befriend the family and especially the sisters and the rest is literary history.

A few years ago I had the opportunity to meander around Christ Church, Oxford and there I photographed a stained glass window by Edward Burne-Jones. His model was Edith Liddell.  That image appears in Mr. Day’s book for which I am grateful because the book is filled with beautiful illustrations, photography and reproductions of engraving and paintings.  And then there’s the mathematical diagram of Fibonacci’s rabbits and the explanation of how that rule applies to the story.  The book truly is a treat for people of wide-ranging interests.

Highly recommend this article by Katherine Dedyna in the Times Colonist and Nathan Whitlock’s review on the Quill and Quire.

The book is available for purchase via the following link: http://www.amazon.com/Alices-Adventures-Wonderland-Decoded-Carrolls/dp/0385682263

It’s mid-July, and here in New England, we’re still talking about this past winter.  The seemingly unending piles of snow will long live in the memory, and for me, so will the unexpected creativity born out of solitude watching things grow even in the dead of winter.  I’m honored to have a series of images from that period featured in the latest Alimentum The Literature of Food.  Enjoy!
