Salvador Dali illustrated a rare 1946 edition of Cervantes’ Don Quixote, dappling the book with both watercolors and black-and-white sketches. The results are, as you might expect, hallucinatory and brilliant.

For a larger sampling, head to Maria Popova’s article over at Brain Pickings. And, if you don’t mind a few nightmares tonight, here are Dali’s illustrations of Alice in Wonderland.
