In the 1960s, realising that the surrealist Salvador Dali and the fantasist mathematician Lewis Carroll were quite possibly of a mind, publishers Random House commissioned Dali to create illustrations for a special limited edition of Alice In Wonderland, of which the artist signed every copy.

Long sought after by bibliophiles and making rare appearances at auction, the edition is something of a publishing legend.

For the 150th anniversary of Carroll’s 1865 surrealist masterpiece, Princeton University Press reprinted the original edition.

Above: Dali’s illustrations forThe Mock Turtle’s Story; The Caucus Race and A Long Tail; The Lobster’s Quadrille; The Queen’s Croquet Ground; Down The Rabbit Hole and Advice From A Caterpillar.
