The incredible artistic mind of Salvador Dalí knew no limits, as evidenced by everything from Dalí’s illustrated cookbook to his logo design for Chupa Chups. But there is no better pairing for the avant-garde master of Surrealism than the fantasy land created by Lewis Carroll in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Luckily for us, a visionary editor at Random House saw the connection and commissioned Dalí to illustrate a limited edition of the classic in 1969.
Dalí created twelve heliogravures for the occasion—one illustration for each chapter—as well as a four-color etching as the frontispiece. Only 2,700 of the edition were printed, and the artist signed each original etching. Of course, with copies becoming increasingly rare, the prices have skyrocketed, but luckily Dalí lovers can rejoice in knowing that Princeton University Press recently reissued an affordable copy.
