Crap Hound #8: Superstitions -- LAST CARTON!
By Sean Tejaratchi
8.5x11, 96-pages, offset printed, saddle stitched.
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. 8
visually explores popular meaning, cultural ideals and historic
symbolism of superstitions.
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.
