For over 45 years, 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, evoking a bucolic sexually liberated paradise that leaves its reader lingering over the imagery long after the gag registers. An Orgy 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. An Orgy of Playboy's Eldon Dedini includes Dedini: A Life of Cartoons, an exclusive documentary DVD directed by Anson Musselman, celebrating the life of the artist via interviews conducted with the artist in 1998 and again in 2005, painting a vivid portrait of a man who helped define the Playboy style of the swinging 1960s.
