"...an arresting terror!" -- Rick Kogan; Chicago Tribune Magazine

With an ADDITIONAL 32 pages, superior printing, and a secure HARDCOVER
binding, KRAMPUS: The Devil of Christmas picks up where the softcover edition of The Devil in Design leaves off.

In the early Christmas traditions of Europe, the Krampus was St. Nicholas' dark servant-a hairy, horned, supernatural beast whose pointed ears and long slithering tongue gave misbehavers the creeps! Whereas St. Nicholas would reward children who'd been good all year, those that had behaved badly were visited by the Krampus.

This NEW and IMPROVED edition includes an introduction, a historical survey of the character, and over 180 lavish pre-World War 1 Krampus postcards.

KRAMPUS: The Devil of Christmas is a lush, hair-raising collection guaranteed to give even Stephen King the creeps!

The print quality of the book is rich and exceptional. The format also is very handy. If you are a folklore fun of Krampus it's sure you will love it as i did!
