While the book gives the reader a great look at Eldon's work over the years (on very fancy paper I might add) the DVD tells you about the life of this great artist. It is funny to see how so many of the women in his cartoons look just like his wife (she features in the documentary too)
Considering I bought this thinking I'd just get the book, it was a great surprise to find that it came with a DVD, there is no mention of it in the listing.
Dedini was a bit of an odd duck for PLAYBOY. A superb illustrator, he fundamentally did not share Hefner's enthusiasm for Free Love, adultery or swinging, but depicted the lifestyle with amazing skill. Everything he drew was voluptuous. The women, of course, but also the metrosexual men, the satyr, even the cars and furniture. And he would slyly sneak his disapproval of the Playboy Philosophy in now and then (The rich couple coming out of Nero's nightclup to find their sporty convertible has been spray-painted with the word "REPENT", for one).
While no one could draw orgies better than Dedini, I think the cartoon that best sums him up comes near the end of the book. A rich, health-conscious couple in a fancy restaurant eyes a tray of sweets warily. The humble waiter clarifies their dilemma for them: "You're born. You die. Enjoy the interval." A beautiful, beautiful book!
