I will provide a comparison between this book (the US version) and the UK coloring book at the end of this review. The pictures and video in this review are only of the US version unless otherwise noted for comparison purposes. I've included one photo with both books to show the different colors of the page.

In 1969 Random House produced a limited run of Alice in Wonderland with 12 wild and colorful heliogravures by surrealist artist Salvador Dali. They issued 2500 standard editions and 500 deluxe editions of the book, charging $375 retail for the standard edition. Copies of the standard edition in good condition now sell for thousands of dollars.
This edition reproduces the original Lewis Carroll text with nice reproductions of the Dali illustrations at a price everyone can afford. The additional material by Carrollian expert Mark Burstein and by a mathematician friend of Dali, Thomas Banchoff, add to the value of owning this edition of Alice no matter how many other versions you may already have.
