MARCH 5th, 2012
Sean is currently working on a book-length version of Crap Hound devoted to "Unhappy People" to be published by Feral House Press, so we thought we'd reprint an old favorite -- Crap Hound #6: Death, Scissors & Telephones with a 16-pg. supplement of all new images -- in the meantime! All the new material is in the supplement, the only change to the magazine from the 3rd edition is the cover.
This time around we're offering pre-orders, as well as a variety of highly covetable rewards! Our goal is $13,000, which will cover the cost of printing 5000 copies of the magazine and supplement, silkscreen print, shipping and handling, and project fees.
Thanks for your interest in our project! If you like what you see, please help spread the word by sharing it with your friends! Remember, Kickstarter is an all or nothing proposition. If we don't meet our goal, we won't receive any funding!
Your Faithful Proprietress,
Reading Frenzy/Show & Tell Press

ABOUT CRAP HOUND
This 4th edition reprint is 100-pages including the cover, comes with a 16-pg. supplement featuring all new material, sports a new cover and includes five copyright free typefaces!
Between a brief introduction and the end credits, Crap Hound is 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, Crap Hound provides a visual survey of death, telephones and scissors.
Debuting in 1994 and created by Sean Tejaratchi, 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, AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts), and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
ABOUT SHOW & TELL PRESS
Founded in 2005, Show & Tell Press is an offshoot of Reading Frenzy, a small, specialty bookshop in Portland, Oregon devoted to independent, small press and self-published titles. Crap Hound is our main project, but we aim to publish a variety of titles -- zines, comics and books -- with a special focus on good design and strong visual content.
ABOUT THE REWARDS
The only way to guarantee obtaining one of our reward items -- digital bonus pack, 16-pg. supplement, buttons, print -- is to become a backer BEFORE our project ends. We will be producing a set quantity of each item and some may sell out during our project, any remaining stock will be sold at Reading Frenzy. Kickstarter reward prices will not apply.
Everything we put out will be beautifully designed and skillfully produced using high quality materials. All our printing is done in the U.S. and Canada. We use American-made textile products, and forest friendly paper for all prints and cards.
A pack of 4 buttons designed by Sean Tejaratchi! Death, Telephones, and Scissors images! Image will be added soon!
This 16-page supplement contains hundreds of images not previously included in Crap Hound #6. It will be offset printed and saddle-stitched. After the project it will only be available with the purchase of Crap Hound #6 (4th ed.).
Designed by Sean Tejaratchi. Limited edition (250), two-color, 18x24, silkscreen print.
BONUS DIGITAL COLLECTION
PLEASE NOTE: The Digital Bonus Pack is only available as a Kickstarter reward for the duration of our project. It will not be available for purchase after our project ends.
Hundreds of images in the Crap Hound #6 supplement required extensive clean up and refinement in Adobe Photoshop before they were ready for layout on the page. These images were high-quality intermediate steps that were made during the issue assembly. Plenty were taken from imperfect photos or scans, and as such, they're not necessarily pristine. On the other hand, all have a great deal of detail that inevitably gets lost when reduced to fit on the final page.
Many are pure line art, without any shading. Others have high-contrast stippling or grit as shading. Before they were reduced on the page, most of these images measured twice the size, almost always at 1200 ppi (pixels per inch). For a few files, when it's too good to pass up, a high-res greyscale or color version will accompany the high-contrast art.
This bonus collection will be uploaded and delivered to you via a download link. You will have two weeks to download it before it's removed. File size should be under 200 MB. Format will most often be high-res bitmap tiff. In some cases, greyscale or RGB will be included. All files were created on a Macintosh, if that's a concern.
We created this gift wrap for our last Kickstarter project and it turned out beautifully. 19x25, 2-color, offset printed. You'll get 3 sheets of each in our Pack O' Crap reward!
Another reward created for our last Kickstarter project, these beautiful silkscreened, 5x7, blank greeting cards were lifted directly from the pages of Crap Hound #8. You'll receive 3 of each in our Pack O' Crap reward.
Five original digital fonts, created by Sean Tejaratchi. All but Orange Phelps feature only uppercase, though Clean Steve and Yelberton have alternate caps in the lowercase positions. All fonts feature a full set of numbers and the standard punctuation set (?!.,.$/ etc.).
These fonts haven't been previously offered for sale or distribution, and all are released under a Creative Commons license allowing for personal and commercial use, but not distribution.
This digital fonts will be uploaded and delivered to you via a download link. You will have two weeks to download it before it's removed.
IN THE INTEREST OF SMOOTH SAILING:
INTERNATIONAL BACKERS: We've had a lot of issues with international backers forgetting to add extra $$ for shipping. PLEASE NOTE our instructions for each reward level. We can't identify international backers until after the project has ended, so we're counting on you to follow our instructions and avoid extra hassle after the fact.
EVERYONE: Please read our reward description carefully to ensure you've chosen the one that you want. Rewards and pledges will not be adjusted after the project ends, but you can change your pledge and/or reward any time before the project ends.
Sorry, NO CUSTOM REWARDS. We've learned from our past several projects that this just creates confusion for backers and extra work for us. We hope one of our rewards works for you.
Finally, PLEASE RESPOND to the survey you'll receive after the project ends promptly! Failing to do so creates an extraordinary amount of extra work for us. If you don't reply within five business days we cannot guarantee the delivery date of your rewards. This means you need to use an email address that you routinely check for Kickstarter, NOT a junk address. This is the single biggest problem we've encountered with using Kickstarter. Please don't be a part of the problem!
Have a question? If the info above doesn't help, you can ask the project creator directly.
