The Museum of Love and Mystery
Readers of Jim Woodring's FRANK comics know that he is a master at conveying rich and complex emotional situations through the medium of the wordless cartoon. The MUSEUM OF LOVE AND MYSTERY is both a continuation of the Frank comics and a departure from them.
THE MUSEUM OF LOVE AND MYSTERY is a souvenir picture album from Frank's strange vacation in the realm of the barely possible. Each full-color doublewide tableau depicts a different event in Frank's day of revelation, drawn in Woodring's fantastically elaborate neo-classical cartoon style. From the soul-satisfying symbolism of the Dark Ride to the majestic encounter in the Throne Room, this garden of unearthly delights is a place adventurous viewers of all ages will want to visit again and again.
The book itself is a tidy brick of gorgeously-modulated chroma packed onto 24 super-thick and nearly unbendable pages, specially engineered to lay flat for optimum viewing pleasure. The cover has glow-in-the-dark silkscreen print.
