Definitely a very arty take on porn. Dave McKean has such an elaborate, glossy art style and I can never quite make up my mind whether I like it or not. This book in particular feels extremely mid 90's MTV Alanis Morisette music video to me in a way that I couldn't really get into. I understand what he was going for with this, but I didn't feel like it had much erotic power as a narrative and the fussiness of the art sort of got in the way of what it was trying to convey. I wish that he had given the book a stronger narrative/written component because I think that would have helped his images to be more powerful and feel less over designed.
