Dali's art is not everything what this edition has to offer. There are two pieces of introduction which I found very interesting. First one is written by Mark Burstain explaining why the surrealists were so interested in Carroll book and the second one of Thomas Banchoff who actually met with Dali many times and provided us with some of stories about the genius. Both of them helped me better understand the madness of Dali, or as Carroll and the surrealists preferred to address: the wisdom.
(In case this review gets cros--posted to other editions, I'm looking specifically at this one.)
This book starts with an introduction by a mathematician who knew the artist, at least a bit, and offers some notes that help place the Alice illustrations within Dali's vast body of work. This is a great item for Alice or Dali completists, but perhaps not ideal for more causal readers.
Alice in Wonderland is really interesting and absorbing. The characters are much amusing and captivating.
Through the Looking Glass also has its moments and it is worth reading.
I skipped Alice's Adventures Underground as it was the original text for Alice in Wonderland with less chapters.
The Hunting of the Snark was entertaining and really fun sometimes even though it was quite nonsensical.
As for Sylvie and Bruno, at this point I felt as if the author had lost some of his touch. I read it till the very end, but it was fairly disconnected and somewhat lost by the end.
I couldn't read Three Sunsets and Other Poems. Not really my thing.
The bonus - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz - was also quite rewarding.
Something I missed when reading the books was the pictures. As far as I can remember there is no pictures in it.
All things considered it was a really nice time.
I hope it helps you.
