Salvador Dali

Everyone knows Salvador Dali was a rad* artist. Not everyone knows that in 1968 he published a suite of 25 lithographs entitled ‘Aliyah,’ published by the Shorewood Press of New York commemorating the 20th anniversary of the founding of Israel. The original portfolio came with a text by Columbia University history professor, Gerson D. Cohen, and an introduction by none other than David Ben Gurion. If you’re in Los Angeles you can see the entire set at the University of Judaism, but if you’re not there, you can take a look at the entire work over 3 pages of images here.

* – I’m originally from the San Fernando Valley, hence the colloquialism.
