Collector Bookstore Quick Notes:

In the 1800s, German folklore held that St. Nikolaus had a dark servant - a hairy, horned, supernatural beast, named Krampus. Good children found gifts in their shoes from St. Nikolaus, while bad children found a switch from Krampus. Krampus terrorized bad children.

This title is filled with large color images from Krampus postcards from 19th century Germany.

Publishers Full Description:

..".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 servanta 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!
