Goltzius and the Pelican Company tells the story of Hendrik Goltzius, a late 16th century Dutch printer and engraver of erotic prints.  A contemporary of Rembrandt and, indeed, more celebrated during his life, Goltzius seduces the Margrave of Alsace into paying for a printing press to make and publish illustrated books.  In return, he promises him an extraordinary book of pictures illustrating the Old Testament’s biblical stories.  Erotic tales of Lot and his daughters, David and Bathsheba, Samson and Delilah and John the Baptist and Salome.  To tempt the Margrave further, Goltzius and his printing company will offer to perform dramatisations of these erotic stories for his court.
