We're ready to take the next issue of Crap Hound to press! This time around we're offering pre-orders on the new issue, as well as a variety of highly covetable rewards! We've offered several combo options, but if you don't see the combination of rewards you would like, simply message us via Kickstarter and we will be happy to put together a special reward package for you.

Our goal this time around is $15,000.00, which will cover the cost of printing 5000 copies of the magazine, producing all of the other rewards, shipping and handling, and project fees. Money raised above our goal will simply make it easier and quicker for us to produce these items.

So, 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,
Chloe Eudaly
Reading Frenzy/Show & Tell Press

P.S. For more information about Crap Hound, Show & Tell Press, and various rewards, please see below.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BACKERS: We've had a lot of issues with international backers forgetting to add extra $$ for shipping, as well as some trouble calculating shipping on rewards that involve multiple items. PLEASE NOTE our instructions for each reward level. We don't know who is pledging from outside of the US until after the project has ended, so we're counting on you to follow our instructions and avoid extra hassle after the fact.

ABOUT CRAP HOUND

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 dozens of popular and lesser known superstitions. This all new issue is 100-pages including the cover and features two copyright free typefaces!

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.

Read a great interview with Sean by Ian Lynam in PingMag. Check out the issues currently available at Reading Frenzy.

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.

Visit our Facebook page for more cover and interior views of Crap Hound. We also have a Show & Tell Press blog.

ABOUT THE REWARDS

The only way to guarantee obtaining one of our reward items -- digital bonus pack, buttons, greeting cards, rubber stamps, wrapping paper and tote bags -- 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.

We'll be posting images of the various rewards and posting updates throughout the project, but you can rest assured that 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.

TOTE BAG

High quality, 100% cotton, silkscreened tote bag designed by Sean Tejaratchi.

WRAPPING PAPER

Six sheets of superstition themed wrapping paper, two designs, approx. 20"x28". We THINK we're going to silkscreen the gift wrap! More details soon...

GOOD LUCK

BAD LUCK

CARDS

A 6-pack of silkscreened greeting cards featuring three of each of the cards pictured below. These blank greeting cards are appropriate for a variety of occasions and suitable for framing!

BUTTON SETS

A neat set of superstition themed 1" buttons. An assortment of good and bad luck, just like real life!

RUBBER STAMPS

High quality, clear photopolymer stamps, includes an acrylic block for mounting and instructions on how to get the best quality imprint from your stamps.

BONUS DIGITAL COLLECTION

Hundreds of images in this issue of Crap Hound 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 probably 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 100 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.

       

FAQ

  • No.

    Last updated:
  • Yes and no. You cannot pledge through Kickstarter and some of our rewards are no longer available or will not be offered at Kickstarter prices. You will be able to order the magazine, tote bag, cards, gift wrap, and rubber stamps through http://www.readingfrenzy.com as they become available. The Bonus Digital Collection is no longer available.

  • Sorry, but no. The time to manage your pledge and/or change your reward was before the project ended. Part of the beauty of Kickstarter is the efficiency and simplicity of how it works and changes after the fact are too time consuming to manage when we are in the middle of rolling out a magazine, producing multiple rewards and assembling nearly 500 packages. Most of the rewards will eventually be available through our website: http://www.readingfrenzy.com

  • Once we've written and submitted the Backer Request Survey Kickstarter is in control of it. I have no way to resend it myself but they will send you multiple notices if you don't reply promptly. If you're not receiving these requests please check your junk file and/or do a search for "kickstarter" in your email. It's important that you find it and fill it out ASAP. Please contact Kickstarter if you have not received it as all surveys have been sent out. PLEASE NOTE: If we are not shipping you anything you won't receive a survey.

  • Currently, the only issues that are in print are:
    Crap Hound No. 4: Clowns, Devils & Bait
    Crap Hound No. 5: Hands, Hearts & Eyes
    Crap Hound No. 7: Church & State (supplies very limited)
    Crap Hound No. 8: Superstitions: due out late August/early September

    The following issues are out of print and unavailable through us. They occasionally surface through used/rare book sellers or online auctions like Ebay. Out of print issues have been known to sell for over $100. Here is the status of each issue:
    Crap Hound No. 1: Death, Telephones & Scissors was revised and expanded and came out as No. 6. Both editions are out of print. No. 1 will never be reprinted, but No. 6 may be re-released in the next three years with a new cover.
    Crap Hound No. 2 & No. 3: Sex & Kitchen Gadgets has never been reprinted. We hope to release revised and expanded issues with new covers in the next three years.
    Crap Hound No. 6 (see Crap Hound No. 1)
