Hovia Wallpaper has released a line of coverings ripped straight out of some of the world’s most works of literature in honor of World Book Day, “the biggest annual celebration of books and reading in the U.K. and Ireland,” happening tomorrow.

The collection’s first print comprises Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’s original 1865 black-and-white illustrations by John Tenniel.

W.W. Denslow’s whimsical artwork for L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published in 1900, is also brought to life in grand scale and rendered in color.

The line also features artwork inspired by Charles Dickens’s most beloved characters from books including Oliver Twist, The Pickwick Papers, and The Old Curiosity Shop.

Whether used for a children’s bedroom, library, or a small nook, these enchanting prints are sure to capture the imaginations of a new generation of readers—or simply remind older ones of the transportive nature of books. Each print is made to order and costs $34 per square meter. Take a look here.
