Liartown: the First Four Years, a tour-de-force of killer shooping and acerbic wit

Sean Tejaratchi's amazing Liartown, USA (previously) is a bottomless well of astoundingly good photoshops from a parallel universe of bitter, ha-ha-only-serious sight gags, minutely detailed, lovingly crafted and often NSFW; Tejaratchi's new 248-page color, 8.5"x11" anthology, LiarTown: The First Four Years 2013-2017 is a powerful dose of creepypasta in its purest form.

Book release party in LA for Liartown book

Sean Tejaratchi is one of my favorite book designers, and his Liartown website, filled with parody book and magazine covers, is as great and funny as National Lampoon was in the 1970s. This Sunday, Wacko in Los Angeles is throwing a book launch party for the new Liartown book. I hope to see you there!

World's greatest trailer for a book: Sean Tejaratchi's Liartown

[NSFW] I don't recall ever seeing a better advertisement for a book. I've been a longtime admirer of Sean Tejaratchi's work, first as the founder of the Craphound zine, then as a book designer, and lately as a creator of absurd satirical ephemera on his website, Liartown. His new book, Liartown, is out next month. See Rob's preview of this stupendous artifact. Read the rest

Liartown: forthcoming book from master image manipulator Sean Tejaratchi

Sean Tejaratchi is the absolute master of photoshopped cultural effluvia, God of an alternative world where the classic trash you remember warps into a mythopoeia of weird, hilarious insanity. And now much of it is to be collected in an 8.5″ x 11″ 248-page color book, Liartown, the first four years.

The book contains almost all LiarTown material from early 2013 to January 2017. It includes an introduction by me, Sean Tejaratchi, a foreword by former Onion editor Scott Dikkers, a section with notes on selected pieces, and an exhaustive index. The back cover will feature brief explanatory text (written especially for the back cover and not previously read by the public), as well as a laudatory comments from cultural notables, a barcode, and cover price. Every inch of this lavishly designed book has been designed to perfection. Even the spine, normally known only as the narrow, bound left edge of a volume, will be emblazoned with the title, subtitle, author, and publisher logo.

Speaking of the publisher, beloved Feral House Books has honored my desire to keep all the bad words and bird dicks and lunchbox tits and other improprieties. I was not asked to change a single thing.

It'll ship in late fall; preorder it now. [Amazon link]

Scarfolk: creepy blog is now an amazing book

Back in August, I blogged the announcement of the forthcoming Discovering Scarfolk, a book-length adaptation of the brilliantly creepy Scarfolk Council blog, which chronicles the government publications of a English town that is forever trapped in a loop from 1969-1979, a town that's like Nightvale crossed with Liartown USA, written by John Wyndham.
