Book Description

In early Christmas traditions of Europe, the Krampus was St. Nikolaus' dark servant - a hairy, horned, supernatural beast who punished naughty children & sometimes their older kin. The hulking beast of anti-Christmas spirit comes in many guises, be it humorous, menacing and even lustful. After a short introduction to the legends & history of this devilish being the book consists of reproductions of the many & frankly nightmarish colour postcards produced mainly between 1898 & 1914 - a fascinating, if scary, collection.
