Book Love: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland + Yayoi Kusama





A fabulous illustrated version of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with artwork by well-known Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama came out recently from Penguin Books in the UK. It's clever to watch the above little video about the title, which seems to be so illustrative of her polka-dot inspired work. I would love to get my hands on a copy of this title and it looks like it can be preordered here.

If you happen to be in London the nine decades of Yayoi's work is showing at the Tate Modern right now! Anyone seen it?

Hello! I went to her exhibition at the Tate, and the installations were incredible (think thousands of glowing polka dots in a mirrored 'Infinity Room').

I saw this book in the gift store and was very tempted to buy it!
