Crap Hound is a full-size Picture Book for Discussion and Activity by Sean Tejaratchi. The zine consists mostly of royalty-free clip-art, along with brief essays and satirical features. The large issues are filled with high-contrast line art culled from vintage catalogs, advertising, obscure books, and found ephemera.

Each issue explores a different subject in its imagery, past subjects have ranged from Hands, Hearts & Eyes to Clowns, Devils and Bait.

Crap Hound began as a smaller photocopied zine and has blossomed in to a sizable magazine-like format. It's found an audience with zine makers, graphic designers and tattoo artists. Out-of-print issues are in high demand. The most recent issues have been re-published by Show & Tell Press run by Chloe Eudaly of Reading Frenzy.

Crap Hound, and the art work of Sean Tejaratchi, was featured in the exhibition The Copyist Conspiracy: An Exhibition of Zine Art in San Francisco in 2005.

Issue #7 is scheduled to be reprinted and shipped in January of 2008.
