  • Seeing Letters, Skulls and Faces

    Henry Holiday's illustration to the back cover of Lewis Carroll's poem The Hunting of the Snark (1876) and a mirrored, rotated and sheared detail from the rear cover illustration. I see letters, like “Anmi”. Did Henry Holiday catch me in a pareidolia tra…

  • Thomas Cranmer's Burning

    · See also: www.academia.edu/9918883/Thomas_Cranmers _42_Boxes The left and right image both are segments from prints which show the burning of Thomas Cranmer. The image in the center is a +135° rotated detail from Henry Holiday's illustration to the…

  • The Expression of Emotions

    To me, the Bellman's arm (upper left corner in the right image) always looked strangely rounded. But obviously there are arms like that. It took me a long time (until today) to get the idea that also these two images could be related although I know Duche…


  • Two red-headed Boys

  • Beagle Laid Ashore & Snarked

    I posted this as a 4758 x 3102 image earlier, but this one is much bigger: 8000x5200. It is an enlargement of the vectorized version of the earlier image. This ship played an important role in the history of science. Its probably most well known passang…

  • The removed "error" had a purpose

    In a 1910 edition of The Hunting of the Snark, an alledged error, which is not an error, had been removed. However, the removed white spot had a reason, as you see in the inset. The inset shows a segment from a 1876 edition with the white spot and a segme…

  • Recycled Bellman Draft

    In an early draft to the image The Crew on Deck, the Bellman had a different face than the one which the Bellman had in the final illustration. Henry Holiday moved that round faced character to the illustration The Barrister's Dream and then turned the B…

  • The Paranoiac-Critical Method serves the Art of Deniability

    Ceci n'est pas un cigare. Hendry Holiday was an underestimated artist. In Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark, Holiday made sure that it is you who will be hold responsible for your perceptions. Both, Holiday and Carroll/Dodgson, were masters of t…
