Crap Hound #4: Clowns, Devils & Bait -- LAST CARTON!

By Sean Tejaratchi

8.5x11, 96 pgs.

Between a brief introduction and the end credits, Crap Hound is pure imagery. Each page is filled with high-contrast art, carefully taken from vintage catalogs, advertising, obscure books, and found ephemera. Through sheer volume of artfully arranged iconography, Issue No. 4 visually explores popular meaning, cultural ideals and historic symbolism of Clowns, Devils and Bait.

Debuting in 1994, Crap Hound became a favorite of both zine readers and publishers, and has received enthusiastic reviews from sources including The New York Times Magazine, RE/Search Books, the American Institute Graphic Arts, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
