Paper Cut Typography of Alice in Wonderland Quote

I love dreamy prints like this. Mr. Yen (aka Jonathan Chapman) created this beautiful paper cut typography print by hand. The quote is from Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland. It states, “Sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Here’s the context: “Alice laughed: “There’s no use trying,” she said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

Mr. Yen is a Leeds, UK-based paper cut artist and designer who graduated from Leeds College of Art in 2010 with a BA in Graphic Design. Since then, he’s worked with such companies and clients as Oprah magazine, House & Garden magazine, Computer Arts magazine and Unilever/LYNX. He can be found on Society6 and Etsy. (I wish I could buy this print but Mr. Yen is taking a break.)
