Collector's Treasure of the Day: Willy Pogany's Alice in Wonderland

"Shrinking Alice" Original Illustration, Alice in Wonderland (1929)
In 1929, Willy Pogány, the prolific Hungarian-born artist best known for his illustrations of classic myths and legends, lent his talents to a new edition of Lewis Carroll's classic Alice in Wonderland. Pogány modernized Alice with a whimsical "Art Nouveau" flair. This charming illustration from page 23 demonstrates the effects of the bottle marked "Drink Me".
