Synopsis:

This sequel to 2004's hugely popular (in multiple printings) The Devil in Design (featuring 18th- and 19th-century Krampus postcards) is a fascinating, full-color compendium of extremely rare devil postcards culled from key postcard collections from around the world and spanning approximately 1898 through the 1950s. Lavishly illustrated with over 150 striking and stylized full-page examples, the book is edited and designed by Monte Beauchamp, editor and designer of the popular graphic arts anthology, Blab!

Beginning in the late 19th century, images of the devil began popping up on postcards in Austria and Germany, and by 1902 became so popular they proliferated across all of Europe. American postcard manufacturers took note and jumped on the bandwagon, producing their own versions. These penny "dreadfuls" were used to promote a vast array of occasions and products―from festive holiday celebrations, such as Halloween and Christmas (in Europe), to popular household products such as furnaces, chili peppers, and insecticides. More than just modest mail pieces, devil postcards were often composed by skilled graphic designers, illustrators, and renowned artists. Devilish Greetings presents over 150 full-color examples of these exquisite cards, culled from the finest postcard collections throughout the world.

150+ full-color illustrations

About the Author: Monte Beauchamp edited The Life & Times of R. Crumb from St. Martin's Press, and the popular Blab! series. His work has appeared in Print, Communication Arts, American Illustration, and the New York Festival's Annual of Advertising. He lives in Chicago, IL.
