LiarTown: The First Four Years 2013-2017 - Welcome to Liartown! A place where reality is skewered with a hilarious combination of comedic genius and graphic design wizardry. There’s an Apple Cabin Foods on every corner, and your favorite Corduroy Porn mags are always in stock. Liartown is a convulsively funny compendium of Sean Tejaratchi’s brilliant takedowns of popular culture and societal trends. Working with a stunning array of source material, Tejaratchi creates clever, uproariously detailed visuals and descriptions of book and magazine covers, films and TV shows, celebrities and “historical” images that at first glance would pass for the real thing. Upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that The Hardy Boys Lose Their S*** was never on the shelf at the local library, and the British crime drama Inspector Cliffchap didn’t have a time slot on the BBC ~ New, $18
The Crap Hound Big Book of Unhappiness - 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 ~ New, 544 pages and just under 5 pounds, $42
