Venus in Furs, Casanova, and the further adventures of Valentina in this oversize collection of classic Crepax comic stories.
From the publisher:
In this Italian erotic comics collection, which spans 1977-1989, the character Valentina, a music, art, and fashion-loving Milanese photographer, ages in "real time." First, she saves Effi, a German heiress, from kidnappers, and they become lovers. Valentina also has an affair with Bruno, a young cellist. Dangerous Liaisons follows our heroine into middle-aged home life with her longtime partner, Phil, with whom she has a grown son, Mattia. Two of Crepax's lauded graphic adaptations: "Venus in Furs" and "The Memoirs of Casanova" are featured in this volume.
"Guido Crepax was one of the most visually inventive cartoonists and graphic artists of his generation -- every page is a stunning invention, and his influence is still being felt. Sexy, stylish, elegant, strange -- the new Fantagraphics Crepax library editions are the definitive collection of this master's work for today's audience." -- Paul Pope - New York Times Best-Selling cartoonist
