“Bring beverage and blanket, Josh Frank’s soundtrack for Giraffes On Horseback Salad has a dreamlike intensity, rabbit-holes that lead to other rabbit-holes, presented as floor show, musical comedy album that guides with libretto and gags and surreal contemplation from another time and place. Stay hydrated.” -- Black Francis (PIXIES)
“Giraffes on Horseback Salad: The Album is a tantalizing work of musical speculative fiction.”
Joel Hodgson, Creator of Mystery Science Theater 3000

Surrealist icon Salvador Dali and iconoclast comedians The Marx Brothers planned a never-made film that merged their sensibilities in a sublime mashup of absurdity, surrealism, slapstick, and wit. But the original screenplay was lost...until now.

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY SAYS....
This graphic novel is utterly one of a kind:
An absurdist romantic comedy about a straitlaced business innovator who falls for a mysterious, reality-warping siren called the Surrealist Woman. The page compositions are exceptional, bursting with motion, mind-bending patterns, and wildly shifting color schemes. The Marx Brothers are drawn with cartoonish charm and written with genuine wit. This messy, imperfect, fearless visual buffet is almost certainly better than any film version would have been.
Dali', The Marx Brothers, and the strangest movie never made
