I memorized the Jabberwocky as a child. The artwork for the original Alice in Wonderland, by Sir John Tenniel, has entered the public domain. This image hangs in my bedroom, printed on a deconstructed page from a stuffy, sexist and racist text cataloging the world's religions (and why Christianity is better) from the 1930s. The seller is here.

The paper it has been printed on amuses the shit out of me. Unlike the authors of that catalog, Carroll knew he was writing fiction.
