Welcome to Liartown ! A place where reality is skewered with a hilarious combination of comedic genius and graphic design wizardry. There's an Apple Cabin Foods on every corner, and your favorite Corduroy Porn mags are always in stock. Liartown is a convulsively funny compendium of Sean Tejaratchi's brilliant takedowns of popular culture and societal trends.For the past four years, Tejeratchi's Liartown USA blog has delighted thousands of online visitors with each new slice of satirical visual commentary. With a selection of the best posts and otherwise unseen material collected into a glossy, full-color trade paperback, readers can now immerse themselves in an alternate world where blockbusters and bestsellers include Banjo the Man-Faced Dog and the Captain James Feelings' Nautical Romance novels.Working with a stunning array of source material, Tejaratchi creates clever, uproariously detailed visuals and descriptions of book and magazine covers, films and TV shows, celebrities and historical" images that at first glance would pass for the real thing. Upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that The Hardy Boys Lose Their S*** was never on the shelf at the local library, and the British crime drama Inspector Cliffchap didn't have a time slot on the BBC."
Sean Tejaratchi is a graphic designer and writer living in Los Angeles, California. He's designed books, created props for for documentary and film, written for television and radio, and is the creator of the zine Crap Hound.

Editorial Reviews

Since 2013, the 47-year-old has posted such meticulous fakes on a Tumblr blog called LiarTownUSA, a blend of satirical takedowns appealing both to fans of the Onion and to graphic design nerds yearning for perfect pastiches of 1950s erotic fiction or 70s knitting magazines. He is at his funniest, though, when he goes beyond the zone of plausibility and sends up today's smug mores. The GuardianTejaratchi's book is dangerous to open if you're in a place where you're not supposed to laugh really hard or there are children. -New Yorker
