The Hairy Monster, a guide.


I bought The Hairy Monster, a guide, by Tom Gauld about 2 years ago and FINALLY got around to get it framed. It looks fantastic! I am so happy to finally have it prominently displayed in our living room. One of the guys at my favorite Brooklyn frameshop, Thoren, totally fell in love with it and asked where I got it from. I managed to look it up but I am sorry to see they’re sold out. So here’s my master plan: Everyone who’s as much in love with this quite amusing 7 images booklet about a hairy monster, should send Tom and email and ask him to print another run. We all should have 7 images related to the hairy monster (Front, Possesions, Bone Structure, Diet, Organs, Droppings and Rear) displayed in our homes. Hairy monster knowledge might come in handy one day….

UPDATE: Heard from Tom: I’m not going to reprint the Hairy Monster Guide as it is, the work will probably reappear in a collection of my minicomics at some point. I don’t think it’s fair on the people who bought the original limited version if I make more of them.
