Ask Alice, Mystical Talking Board


Measuring approximately 16 by 12 inches, this talking board is titled Ask Alice, and is created using a collage of John Tenniel illustrations from the original Alice in Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass publications. It is expertly etched from quarter-inch thick birch, and varnished to a smooth finish for easy movement of the planchette. 

Available in 2 colors, Black or Purple.

“This board is based on one I designed in 2016 for the New Orlean's Witches Ball. I’ve always been a big Alice In Wonderland fan, having many different illustrated copies. I’ve always wanted to work with Tenniel’s wonderful illustrations, so I jumped at the opportunity to design this particular board. My biggest challenge was deciding which images wouldn’t make the cut. Those who use talkingboards know that the messages can often be cryptic and topsy-turvy, so Wonderland seems a perfect environment for a talkingboard design. A popular interpretation of Alice’s adventure is that it all happen within her mind, and some theorize that messages spelled out on talkingboards come from our own mind as well.” -Chas Bogan
