This book presents half a century of cartoons from "Playboy's" most venerable contributor. This is the first retrospective collection of Dedini's work that gathers in one volume the most sophisticated, elegant - and funny - gag panels of the past six decades. For over 45 years, Eldon Dedini has been one of "Playboy's" most recognisable full-page gag-cartoonists. With a masterful watercolour 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, evoking a bucolic sexually liberated paradise that leaves its readers lingering over the imagery long after the gags register.
