  • 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…

  • Holidays Boojum

    Plain Boojum

  • J. J. Grandville's Monsters

  • The Bellman and Charles Darwin

    1876 and around 1870. If it was for this pairing only, I would not use this side-by-side image as an example for allusions to Charles Darwin (19th century portrait) in Lewis Carroll's and Henry Holiday's The Hunting of the Snark. Also, too obvious allusi…
