Illustrating Alice in Wonderland: a gallery

Salvador Dali (1969)

My e-mail pen pal Jack Clontz sent me a link to a wonderful gallery of illustrations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.  The pictures capture the basic strangeness of the book.  I have copied samples of the pictures, which you can look at below.  For the full gallery, click on The Best Illustrations from 150 Years of Alice in Wonderland by Maria Popova for Brain Pickings.
