Alice’s Evidence is from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as interpreted by Salvador Dali.
Random House publishers commissioned Salvador Dalí to produce an exclusive edition of Alice in Wonderland, originally written by Lewis Carroll in 1865. Dalí created twelve heliogravures (lithographs) and a frontispiece, arranging both the text and images in a deluxe publication.
Alice’s Evidence: ‘Here!’ cried Alice, quite forgetting in the flurry of the moment how large she had grown in the last few minutes, and she jumped up in such a hurry that she tipped over the jury box with the edge of her skirt, upsetting all the jurymen onto the heads of the crowd below, and there they lay sprawling about, reminding her very much of a globe of goldfish she had accidentally upset the week before..
This heliogravure is based on an original gouache, published in 1969 by Maecenas Press – Random House, New York. The total triage is 2800 + artist’s proofs. There are 2500 of the regular edition on Mandeure paper, 200 (I/CC – CC/CC) of the double edition on Rives & Japon paper – with only the frontispiece signed. Finally, there is an exclusive edition of only 100 impressions on Rives paper. In the version of 100, Dali signed the lithographs. These 100 contain the Rives watermark in the paper.
This example is numbered 6, from the small, exclusive group of only 100 impressions that were signed by the artist and is the perfect accompaniment to The Mock Turtle’s Story.
