Salvador Dalí Illustrates “Alice in Wonderland”

Alice in Wonderland was written by English author Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym of Lewis Carroll. It was first published in 1865 and has been illustrated by many different artists. The most famous artist to lend his talents was that of Salvador Dalí.

He completed a total of thirteen illustrations, one for each chapter of the book, and one original signed etching in 4 colors as the frontpiece. This edition was published by New York’s Maecenas Press-Random House in 1969 and distributed as their book of the month. The volume went on to become one of the most sought after Dalí suites of all time.
