Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with artwork by Yayoi Kusama
It's a Penguin Classic with the full text. The book design plays with font as well as colour. The result is delightfully whimsical and best demonstrated with examples of some of the pages. You really must handle it yourself to appreciate the high production quality in this beautiful, hardcover book. It would make a lovely gift.
