Craphound #5: A Picture Book For Discussion Activity

Craphound #5: A Picture Book For Discussion Activity

by Sean Tejeratchi

In case you missed it the first time around, Crap Hound—A Picture Book for Discussion and Activity is, between a brief introduction and the end credits, pure imagery. Each page is filled with high-contrast line art, culled from vintage catalogs, advertising, obscure books, and found ephemera. Through sheer volume of artfully arranged iconography, issue No. 5 visually explores the popular meaning, cultural ideals and historic symbolism of Hands, Hearts & Eyes. Perfect for zine makers, graphic designers, tattoo artists, or just someone who needs a specific, perfect image. Sean has a tremendous ability to scour for such things and the results are stunning. Time and again I'm amazed by the genius employed in collecting clip art.

Hey Alan, tricky. I've not got a copy yet but by the sounds of things the layout is entirely original, but made up of found images and ready to photocopy and recycle in cut out parts *anywhere*.
