Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with Artwork by Yayoi Kusama
|Series:||A\Penguin Classics Hardcover Ser.|
Lewis Carroll's whimsically timeless tale, beautifully illustrated by world-renowned pop artist Yayoi Kusama. Nominated as one of America's best-loved novels by PBS's The Great American Read
Since childhood, Kusama has been afflicted with a condition that makes her see spots, which means she sees the world in a surreal, almost hallucinogenic way that sits very well with the Wonderland of Alice. She is fascinated by childhood and the way adults have the ability, at their most creative, to see things the way children do, a central concern of the Alice books. The classic book is colour illustrated with a clothbound jacket, and produced to very high specification. Kusama's images are interspersed throughout the text. Produced in collaboration with the Kusama Studio, Tokyo and Gagosian Gallery.
