Description

In “Whole Lotta Love” Myfanwy MacLeod takes on one of the most iconic songs by one of the most prolific bands in classic rock history to present the reader with an x-rated illustrated songbook. By fixing the song within the codex and picturing the lyrics via simple line drawings and bubble lettering, MacLeod privileges the visual over the sonic, offering another type of cover version. Through the highly-sexed depiction of the song, the artist perverts the dominant male codes of rock and roll by opening up a point of entry for female desire all the while maintaining her characteristic humor and wit.
