“Hi Potential Buyer,

I’ve long fantasized about this moment. I can see you now, reclining at your cubicle, cozy under the warm embrace of a hand-knitted wool afghan. It’s cold. Shivering, you slowly turn through Todd’s Favorite Adult Actors and Their Favorite Flowers. I’ve prepared this booklet especially for you; it’s a deeply intimate account of my romantic encounters with several favorite paramours. The electricity is out and you’re forced to read by candlelight. I tell you that I love you as I comb through your chest hair. We will be friends forever.

All my love, Todd”

Todd’s Favorite Adult Actors and Their Favorite Flowers is a zine by artist Zach Huelsing and writer Matt Kessler. This hand-assembled portfolio consists of a set of eight cards depicting adult film stars and their favorite flowers. The cards are designed to loosely mimic baseball cards, complete with appropriate stats and a fictitious anecdote about the collector’s imaginative run-ins with the actors. The cards are presented in protective sleeves and displayed in a Velcro-sealed portfolio. Neither book nor comic, Todd’s Favorite Adult Actors and Their Favorite Flowers relates the humorous and misinformed tale of Todd’s fantasies in a fun and unique way.
