Alice in Wonderland is a classic book originally illustrated by the author and mathematician himself, Lewis Carroll. The book evokes nonsensical and fantastical stories, which many an artist have attempted to illustrate.
And now, to celebrate the book’s 150th anniversary, a version illustrated by Salvador Dali is being released! Dreams do come true!
According to BrainPickings, the book is “a crowning achievement among the greatest illustrations of the Carroll masterpiece from the century and a half since its inception, featuring new introductions by Mark Burstein, president of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America, and mathematician Thomas Banchoff, who knew and collaborated with Dalí.”
I loved the book as a child (still do) and am happy to see the celebration is continuing long after the book’s publication. Let the mad tea parties begin!
