Dildo is a community in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. This book offers a photographic tour of the charming, vibrant town located in Trinity Bay, about eighty kilometres west of St. John's. Dildo's unusual name has brought it a certain amount of notoriety. In August 2019, the American late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! focused on Dildo over a number of episodes. As part of the activity, which brought the small rural community immediate international fame, host Jimmy Kimmel was made honorary mayor of Dildo. Kimmel declared Hollywood as Dildo's sister city.
