Lewis Carroll's Alice and Wonderland is an inspiration to many movies and archetypes in pop culture. It's also a constant theme and inspiration for Lolita fashion - there are many prints and outfits modeled after the ever curious Alice.
If you've never been to the Morgan Library, it is a museum devoted to art and literature (think lots of first editions). As part of the 150 anniversary of this novel fairytale, the Morgan Library and Museum will house the original manuscript, as well as "an engaging account of the genesis, publication, and enduring appeal of Lewis Carroll's classic tale, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," in their exhibition Alice: 150 Years of Wonderland.
Note: The museum is free from 7-9 on Fridays. Perfect way to start the weekend.
