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. 5 visually explores popular meaning, cultural ideals and historic symbolism of Hands, Hearts and Eyes.
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 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!
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.
