Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
  • A woman arrives at an apartment, but her partner can't get away from work. She is disappointed and settles in for a night alone, but finds a film projector with a reel of film loaded. The film is scratched and blurry, but she can make out a couple making love. When the film burns out, a door is revealed which leads to a misty town square... and a series of fantastical sexual encounters. But the plot doesn't really matter. The artist says: "There are so many comics about violence. I'm not entertained or amused by violence, and I'd rather not have it in my life. Sex, on the other hand, is something the vast majority of us enjoy, yet it rarely seems to be the subject of comics. Pornography is usually bland, repetitive, and ugly, and, at most, 'does the job'. I always wanted to make a book that is pornographic, but is also, I hope, beautiful, and mysterious, and engages the mind."
  • Bringing to bear the astonishing range of illustrative and storytelling skills that have served him so well on his collaborations with Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean forges into new territory with fantastical erotica.
