The Devil in Design is a fascinating, full-color compendium of extremely rare, late 19th and early 20th-century Krampus postcards. This is a fascinating collection of vintage Christmas cards for misbehaved children.

Whereas Saint Nicholas would reward children who had been good all year with treats, those that had been disobedient were paid a visit by the Krampus. Lavishly illustrated with over a 150 striking and stylized full-page examples, the book also includes a short introduction tracing the character’s origin and its overwhelming popularity throughout Europe.
