An all-new issue of the astounding found-art/collage zine Crap Hound is in the offing, with a Kickstarter project to raise funds to make it a reality. The theme of this issue is "Superstitions." Crap Hound is one of my favorite zines of all time, and it's so wonderful that it's come back into production.
We're ready to take the next issue of Crap Hound to press! This time around we're offering pre-orders on the new issue, as well as a variety of highly covetable rewards! We've offered several combo options, but if you don't see the combination of rewards you would like, simply message us via Kickstarter and we will be happy to put together a special reward package for you.
Crap Hound No. 8: Superstitions! All New Issue!
Our goal this time around is $15,000.00, which will cover the cost of printing 5000 copies of the magazine, producing all of the other rewards, shipping and handling, and project fees. Money raised above our goal will simply make it easier and quicker for us to produce these items.
