A book of removeable stickers featuring the Devil of Christmas, Krampus!
This is the second volume of the large-format Krampus Sticker Book series, and features 72 more reusable Krampus stickers to delight the good and frighten the bad.
In the early Christmas traditions of Europe, the Krampus was St. Nikolausâ dark servant âa hairy, horned, supernatural beast whose pointed ears and long, slithering tongue gave misbehavers the creeps! Whereas St. Nicholas would reward children whoâd been good all year with small gifts and treats, those that had behaved badly were paid a visit by the Krampus!
All images are culled from vintage, pre-WWI Krampus postcards found in Monte Beauchampâs two Krampus books, Krampus, the Devil of Christmas, and The Devil in Design: the Krampus Postcards, which started the Krampus craze that is sweeping America.
