Švankmajer’s Alice Books Are Now in English!!

Jan Švankmajer
’s film Alice (originally Něco z Alenky) is well known to us all, but did you know his surreal collages served to illustrate books of both Wonderland and Looking-glass? Perhaps not, as it was only published in Japanese. But now an English-language edition has been released, and on that site you can not only purchase the book (signed by Jan!), but many others things, such as etchings, posters, books, and his films on DVD.

Eva Švankmajerová, a surrealist painter, ceramicist, and writer worked with her husband on several of his movies, including her art-directing Něco z Alenky and making three lovely posters for it, one for each of its releases: Czech, German, and English.

Please note “that it is necessary to pay separately for each item. Posters are sent in a tube, books in envelopes (it is possible to add one – 2 DVD, but no more), exclusive collection in a cardboard box. Furthermore, be sure to pay for non-European postage if you are not in an EU country (or the UK).”
