In 1969, the Random House Book of the Month Club gave readers the opportunity to purchase a copy of Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland as illustrated by surrealist painter Salvador DalĂ­. And yes, the Mad Hatter's tea party does include a picture of a melted clock.

The painter put his loopy imprimatur on each one of the book's chapters. Here's a video guide to the book. Also somewhat related, the Disney/DalĂ­ collaboration Destino.
