Fun with Allusions
I think that Henry Holiday had quite some fun in imagining how the beholders of his illustrations would deal with what they might see. And the cannot hold him responsible for what they see.

Where do Boojums live?
I posted this image to a "Carrollian" Facebook group. It was pending for a day and then disappeared. Perhaps it was not approved because of my Germanic English. Or did someone spot the Boojum somewhere in this image? Actually, such Boojums do not live in pictures. They live in brains.
