How amazing are these Alice in Wonderland illustrations by Salvador Dali? This twelve-part suite, with one illustration for each chapter of the book, was originally published in 1865 and is one of the rarest and most sought-after of Dali’s works. I love the bold colors and the interplay between the distinct and indistinct; what is rendered in black is so crisp and clear while the colors bleed and fade into each other like a dream. The surrealism of these illustrations so perfectly captures the strange and magical essence of Wonderland, and have made me that much more excited to dive into Alice in Wonderland this summer!
