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 & Eyes.

The first edition was printed in 1996, with 68 pages. The 2004 second edition added 8 pages of content. This 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 of Graphic Arts, and the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
