Crap Hound 5: Hands, Hearts & Eyes! Crafts / Collage / Advertising / Illustration / Ephemera / DIY / Tattoo Flash; Vintage Clip Art Magazine
So... If you're reading this, you likely already know what a true treasure Crap Hound is. And thus what this awesome out-of-print magazine entails. But just in case you'd like to know a l'il more...: Being an amazing resource for artists, crafters, and designers, Crap Hound #5--"A Picture Book for Discussion and Activity!"--is perfect for a wide variety of creative projects! Or, simply enjoy it by thumbing through the 88-page mag every once in a while; for inspiration, for taking in visual feasts of more days more innocent than these... Or (for) otherwise. Yum! Yes, 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. An amazing mixture of social commentary and self-acknowledged over-indulgent graphic design! Through sheer volume of artfully arranged iconography, Issue No. 5 visually explores popular meaning, cultural ideals and historic symbolism of Hands, Hearts & Eyes. That's quite the mouthful. ;) BTW, the first edition of Hands, Hearts and Eyes was printed in 1996, with 68 pages. The 2004 second edition added 8 pages of content. The 3rd edition (this very one!) contains 12 more, bringing the total to 88 pages. Inside you'll find 16 pages of eyes, 24 pages of hearts, 35 pages of hands, 3 copyright free typefaces, and 2 pages of random images! Or so they say... :) 100% brand-spankin' new--aka mint--copy. And what may also help is that ours (and ours only!) includes a special bonus insert about three rare Sean-provided, high resolution (16,000 pixels tall!)
