When Salvador Dalí Illustrated Alice in Wonderland

In 1969, “a collaboration of epic proportion took place as the Lewis Carroll classic was illustrated by none other than Salvador Dalí... 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. It contains 12 heliogravures, one for each chapter of the book, and one original signed etching in 4 colors as the frontpiece, all of which the fine folks at the William Bennett Gallery have kindly digitized for your gasping pleasure:”
