I adore Illustration. Since my little niece was born I have spent so many magic moments at bookstores – kid´s section-… One can find the classic tales but also poems, biographies, and even historical events adapted and illustrated for kids. For me this is just a fantasy world. Earlier today I had in my hands Lisa Evans books! What a gift!
Dali’s incredible illustrations for Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” (published in 1865) have caused it to become one of the rarest and most sought-after Dali suites. With the original gouaches published by Maecenas Press-Random House, New York in 1969, the suite now contains 12 heliogravures – one for each chapter of the book – and comes with 1 original signed etching in 4 colors as the frontpiece.
This collaboration brings together arguably two of the most creative minds in Western culture, as both are considered ultimate explorers of dreams and imagination.
