Description


Are you unhappy? You're not alone. Unhappiness stalks us all, from that first painful slap in the delivery room to the final sorrow of a graveside service. Rather than attempt to alleviate or rise above life's trauma, the Crap Hound Big Book of Unhappiness instead enthusiastically catalogs popular culture's attempts to illustrate, channel, and finally exploit our anxieties. Editor Sean Tejaratchi arranges this monumental tome with an artful eye, documenting and teasing out the patterns in popular depictions of human suffering. Between a brief introduction and the end credits, The CrapHound Big Book of Unhappiness is pure vintage 20th Century imagery, carefully collected from old catalogs, advertising, obscure books, and found ephemera. Its emotionally painful mixture of social commentary and somewhat overindulgent graphic design is intended for education and reference only.
