  • 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.

Review:

The visionary art director behind The Sandman 's covers creates a coital masterwork that elicits beauty and excitement in equal measure.... Celluloid is a treasure of technical finesse and sensual mystique that transcends its potential controversy. --Sean Edgar

Dave McKean 's art never fails to amaze me... I ll never look at a fig, a pear, or a red tomatillo the same way again. ...I think this would make a good paper anniversary gift. --Gene Ambaum

The visionary art director behind The Sandman s covers creates a coital masterwork that elicits beauty and excitement in equal measure.... Celluloid is a treasure of technical finesse and sensual mystique that transcends its potential controversy. --Sean Edgar"

[McKean] has created a wordless tale that's more about arty tricks than getting your kicks . It's a grown-up approach to sex, and a rich escapist read --Eleanor Goodman"

A decidedly adult erotica graphic novel with no dialogue, this is the famed Sandman cover artist going at page after page of a sexy hallucination, whipped up by a magic porno movie projector. Dreamscapes with boners. --Cyriaque Lamar"

Book Description Fantagraphics, United States, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. But the plot doesn t really matter.Celluloid is a rare instance (especially among Anglo-Saxons) of a top-flight cartoonist working within erotic -- even pornographic, to embrace the word -- parameters, with the intent of creating a genuine work of art. As 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 and such solo projects as the (recently re-released) epic graphic novelCages, Dave McKean forges into new territory with this unique work of erotica.
