Art of Playboy's Eldon Dedini HC (2006) comic books
1st printing. "An Orgy of Playboy's Eldon Dedini!" Eldon Dedini has been one of Playboy's most recognizable full-page gag cartoonists. With a masterful watercolor technique that burlesques a broad range of subjects, from East and West Coast urban and suburban adult-hipster to classical Japanese erotic prints, Dedini's most personal cartoons rely on mythology and legend. They evoke a bucolic sexually-liberated paradise that leaves his readers lingering over the imagery long after the gag registers. The Art of Playboy's Eldon Dedini is the first retrospective collection of his work, and gathers in one volume the most sophisticated, elegant, and funny gag panels of the past six decades. Hardcover, 8 3/4-in. X 11 1/2-in., 242 pages, full color (some B&W). MATURE READERS Cover price $39.95.
