The Alcuin Society is proud to announce that its Annual General Meeting will have a special guest in the person of Charles van Sandwyk, who will give a presentation on his upcoming Folio book, Alice in Wonderland. His work in watercolour, etchings and book illustration is known and collected all over the world. Since 1986, the National Library of Canada has kept an archive of his work, and in 1992 it bought his original drawings and paintings for his book The Paradise to Paradise. The dreamy, ethereal feel of his work, evocative of old print, gives his illustrations a distinctive, compelling style. The participants to AGM have the unique opportunity to receive a limited edition keepsake designed by Charles himself for this occasion, which will go on sale after the event.
The AGM will take place at UBC Golf Club (5185 University Boulevard, Vancouver), on Monday, June 9. Doors open at 6:30 pm and the meeting starts at 7. Charles van Sandwyk will talk for an hour starting at 7:30. Tea, coffee and cookies are available free of charge, and there will be a cash bar.
