Alice in Wonderland by Salvador Dali

Sir John Tenniel is the best known illustrator of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. However, literally scads of artist have taken a crack at Lewis Carroll's story and characters. And over at Hugo Strikes Back, they've got Alice Illustrations Other Than Tenniel, with those aforementioned scads.

I don't know why the story of Alice appeals to me so much. Probably because it's an absolute head trip happening with a practical young person in the middle of it trying to make sense of things enough to get to where she's trying to go. Which is really a lot like life. Maybe that's it. I also have a huge love of the work of Salvador Dali.

Now I find out, via this resource, that there's an entire book of Alice accompanied by Dali art. Ho-ly crap. It's a limited edition. That's going on eBay for $7500. Now I must weep into my morning cola.

And BTW/FYI/YMMV, we did post a cinematic round-up of Alice stuff here.
