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!
