Alice in Wonderland illustrations by Salvador Dalí

Alice in Wonderland illustrations by Salvador Dalí show his connection to Lewis Carroll

Salvador Dalí’s Alice in Wonderland illustrations were published in an extraordinary new edition of the classic. Princeton University Press released a new edition to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s iconic novel, which the public has rarely seen.

It is a reprint of a copy that had a small publishing run. As a result, very few readers have gotten their hands on it. Some of the copies were for the artist’s studio; others were found in auction lots. The book was sold in the 1960s.

Salvador Dali's Illustrations

Random House commissioned Salvador Dalí to illustrate the fantastic story of Alice. The publisher saw the perfect combination between Dalí’s work and Carroll’s story.

The end result was simply incredible; a splurge of colors, textures and images of the most surreal kind. Additionally, the artist signed each of the pieces as a perk.

On the whole, 12 heliogravures made up the body of this collection.
Furthermore, each edition had a different cover; each chapter was represented by an illustration. The new publication begins with a text by Marcos Burstein, president of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America.

In it, Burstein explains the connection between Dali and Carroll’s work. In short, these two men truly possessed a visionary mind capable of creating fantasy worlds.
