Alice in Wonderland
I've often seen a cat without a grin,
but a grin without a cat!

Text taken from "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll is turned to 3D object in this series. The stack of words composed of three dimensional letters are taken from the following excerpt:

"The Cat only grinned when it saw Alice. It looked good-natured, she thought: still it had very long claws and a great many teeth, so she felt it ought to be treated with respect.
"Cheshire Puss," she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name however, it only grinned a little wider. " Come, it's pleased so far," thought Alice, and she went on, " would you tell me, please, which way I ought to walk from here ?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don't much care where --" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you walk," said the Cat.
"-- so long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation.
"Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, " if you only walk long enough."
