    Lewis Carroll has no descendents, having never had children of his own. The signatory in question is actually a descendent of one of his many siblings.

    Oh.

    My.

    Not cheap, but not unreasonable for what they are… I don’t think I can stretch my budget to the whole set (especially when one can buy originals by reasonably well known current artists for that price or less), but it’s tempting to pick up one or two of my favorites.

    Sure are a lot of copyright symbols on that page for a work that is tremendously in the public domain.

    Absolutely beautiful though.

    #6: Yeah, but that’s good enough for sentimental value and limited-edition status. At least until some time traveller goes back and gets the original signatures.

    #2: The original art is presumably out of copyright. That doesn’t necessarily mean photos of it are out of copyright, or that new engravings derived from it are out of copyright… or that there aren’t copyrights on the new page layouts of art combined with text. “Straining at gnats and swallowing camels is a first-year law course.”

    WOW! I can imagine the price of this limited edition skyrocketing in a couple of Harajuku stores I love…
