After designing and setting Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as an experiment, I would now like to start a second book project. I am looking for a new challenge -- something with different requirements from Alice.
You are invited to help me choose a the text for the project. This text should be in the public domain and of a reasonable length -- the complete works of Shakespeare or the Bible would, therefore, not be appropriate suggestions. I will consider works for which illustrations in the public domain are available if the illustrations have a different function from the one's in Alice, e.g., if they are an integral part of the text.
