10th of December: Tablecloth

10thThis print is taken from Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by John Tenniel. The copy this print is taken from was published in 1953.

There was not a moment to be lost. Already several of the guests were lying down in the dishes, and the soup-ladle was walking up the table towards Alice’s chair, and beckoning to her impatiently to get out of its way.

‘I can’t stand this any longer!’ she cried, as she jumped up and seized the tablecloth with both hands: one good pull, and plates, dishes, guests and candles came crashing down together in a heap on the floor.
