The crisp air from the Bay blows through a mop of curly coal black hair—it would still be several years before he immersed his razor in the waters of Zamzam. He’d been hustling work here and there, tickling the ivory and the girls at burlesque houses, snapping a few crime scene photos for the police and even taking the “nut calls” the cops didn’t want to deal with. Now, his wife and daughter are at home and he’s got to make ends meet. Twenty miles […]

Underworld Amusements proudly presents two posters from two of their published authors, Benjamin DeCasseres and Ragnar Redbeard, approaching American Liberty at two different angles. ORDER NOW   Benjamin DeCasseres personifies America in an unironic celebration of the history of the nation titled “I Am the United States.” DeCasseres was a thorough-going anti-German, and this poster, originally released by the National Republic magazine in the 1940s, was his drum-beat to go to war against the totalitarian states abroad.
