International Ex Libris

"Alice in Wonderland"

» Premise

Alice in Wonderland is the new competition that our association proposes.
The project was created in 2015 on the occasion of the 150 years since the first publication of the book “Alice in Wonderland”.
The union between the fantasy tale, the magical and mysterious world of ex libris and Enchanted Wood seemed the perfect setting to launch a new competition for unpublished exlibris.
Alice is more than ever a various iconographic theme that
offers many interpretative hints. It will be interesting to see
how it will be graphically represented by all participants .
“The Enchanted Wood” is not only art and culture, but is also the defense and protection of the territory. Borders do not exist so, from the tops of the mountains to the valley it needs everyone help to keep on living!
Everything perishes, but not the richness of the forest in all
its forms : flora,fauna,landscape,environmental resource, ourism ad magic of Ex Libris.
The Enchanted Wood is also another dimension, a plung in the memory of
stories, fairy tales, legends that people have dedicated to the Word do f the imagination and that can be found, often identical, in different parts of the glob with allegorical, satirical and instructive meaning that involves writting, oral tradition and the Ex Libris in a sinuous never ending path.
Why "Solstizio d’Estate " is dedicated to fables, mythology and magic ? Simply because we cannot afford to lose a wonderful opportunity to open a window on the ihned most thoughts of humanity.
Myths, legends and magic are indeed a universal human
creation ; they were born in different times and places as an explanation o
f the problems which man is measured with andthat transcends our ability to understand:the end of life, misfortune, success, cruelty, love that sometimes goes beyondlife andhoena better world.of 30 copies
