Cecil's Quest, a comics like book with puppets photographed in the real nature. Puppets, setting, story and photography by František Skála.


The story is a classical adventure of a guy (his Czech name is Cílek) trying to save his maid (Lída) from a danger and undergoing a journey through the chaos presented by parts of a forest filled up with bad and good creatures, who give him obstacles or try to help him. The most sympathetic guy nevertheless is Homer (in the first picture), a sort of eremite living in the forest (who drives his car there, very civilized man), looks like an old underground hero, who ended up leaving the world for a solitude, wears tight jeans and loose knitted sweater and has a good supply of Italian goodies in his cellar. As someone described the book: "I would like to live the story presented in this book." I think I don't need to add anything more. Perhaps only the thing that the book perfectly fits a child in our adult soul.
