Photo: Alice et al at Hatcher through Nov. 25

Viola Savoy as Alice and Herbert Rice as the White Rabbit are depicted in a color frontis piece taken from silent film stills circa 1915, which illustrate "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "Through the Looking-Glass," published by New York, Grosset and Dunlap Publishers, 1915-17 and featured in the Special Collections Library exhibit, "Imaginary Worlds: Created Places in Children's Literature." It is presented through Nov. 25 in the exhibit gallery on the seventh floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library on Central Campus. The exhibit is drawn from the library's new and growing Children's Literature Collection that fills more than 100 shelves comprising the Hubbard Imaginary Voyages Collection. The library has more than 6,000 picture books in the Lee Walp Family Juvenile Collection and a recent gift of more than 2,300 pop-up and moveable books. The purchase of the Janice Dohm collection adds extensive holdings of fairy tales and works by Beatrix Potter, including her Peter Rabbit tales. "The books, the manuscripts and the artwork provide an opportunity for study of the creative process," says William Gosling, curator of the library's children's literature collection, adding the collection is used by researchers and classes in a surprising variety of disciplines. The gallery is open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.-noon Saturdays. (Photoplay copyrighted by the Nonpareil Feature Film Corp.)
