Thanks to Anthony Bourdain's A Krampus Carol, and appearances on the smash television series The Supernatural, GRIMM, and NCIS, Europe's hairy, horned folklore figure is fast becoming an American pop culture phenomenon.

Last Gasp and Monte Beauchamp's Creepy Krampus Coloring Book delivers a diverse collection of rare, century-old artwork from Krampus' very own vault, offering you the opportunity to apply an array of coloring mediums-crayons, pencils, markers, and gel pens for the line drawings, and watercolor for those shaded in gray.

Both beginner and skilled colorist alike will have hours of CRAZY FUN imbuing these long-lost Krampus images with many combinations of hues.
CYBERPUNKS

CYBERPUNKS

By: Leary, Timothy
$12.95
More Info
This timely book, Timothy Leary's "cyberpunk manifesto," is his future-vision of the emergence of a new humanism with an emphasis on questioning authority, independent thinking, individual creativity, and empowerment via computers and brain technologies. Cyberpunks brings together some of Leary's most provocative writings, along with selections from interviews and conversations with a variety of writers and thinkers. Individual chapters include "How I Became an Amphibian," "Personal Computers; Personal Freedom," and "Navigational Game Plane." "How to Boot Up Your Bio-Computer" typifies Leary's outrageous yet surprisingly grounded ideas, linking pagan, nature-based rituals with a "collective boot-up" of the brain through stimulation from certain natural plants. Together, these pieces describe a new breed of human being who embraces technology, uses it to revolutionize communication and evade and annoy Big Brother, while at the same time achieving personal success, attaining political power, and above all, having fun.

Seventy-two striking, removable stickers that will delight good boys and girls and frighten the bad. In the early Christmas folklore of Europe, Krampus was St. Nikolaus' dark servant-a hairy, horned, supernatural beast whose pointed ears and long, slithering tongue gave misbehavers the creeps! Whereas St. Nickolaus would reward children who'd been good all year with small gifts and treats, those who had behaved badly were reprimanded by Krampus! A perfect stocking stuffer.

A gorgeous collection of photographs from the creator of the original street style blog.

Scott Schuman just wanted to take photographs of people that he met on the streets of New York who he felt looked great.

His now-famous and much-loved blog, thesartorialist.com, is his showcase for the wonderful and varied sartorial tastes of real people across the globe. This book is a beautiful anthology of Scott's favorite images, accompanied by his insightful commentary. It includes photographs of well-known fashion figures alongside people encountered on the street whose personal style and taste demand a closer look.

From the streets of New York to the parks of Florence, from Stockholm to Paris, from London to Moscow and Milan, these are the men and women who have inspired Scott and the many diverse and fashionable readers of his blog.

After fifteen years in the fashion business, Scott Schuman felt a growing disconnect between what he saw on the runways and in magazines, and what real people were wearing. The Sartorialist was his attempt to redress the balance. Since its beginning, the blog has become hugely admired and influential in the fashion industry and beyond. Thesartorialist.com is consistently named one of the top blogs in the world. A self-taught photographer, Schuman shoots for publications including French Vogue, American GQ, Fantastic Man and Elle, and a growing list of advertising clients. Scott has also shown his work at the New York photo gallery The Danziger Projects and appeared in the GAP Style Icon campaign in the fall of 2008. He has been named the number one fashion photography trend by American Photo magazine, as well as one of Time magazine's top 100 design influencers.
