• Unknown illustrations by Salvador Dali to "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"

"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" - a fairy tale, written by the English mathematician Lewis Carroll in the XIX century, which to this day remains a living symbol of creativity and imagination. Therefore there is nothing surprising in the fact that many artists have included Carroll images in their work. However, you must be surprised to know that one of these artists was the surrealist Salvador Dali.

In 1969, one of the Random House publishing editors hired Dalí to that illustrated the limited edition of "Alice 's Adventures in Wonderland" through a series of "Book of the Month". The result is a 12 heliogravures in which the well-known fairy tale has acquired new features. For a long time this version of the book was stored only in a few collectors, but in honor of the 150th anniversary of the publishing tales Princeton University Press reissued this work with illustrations by Dali and with a foreword by Mark Bernstein, head of the North American Society of Lewis Carroll fans. We have signed an illustration of the chapter name in the translation of Boris Zakhoder. There are eight variants of the translation into Russian, including Nina Demurova and Vladimir Nabokov.
