Outré Journal is an almanac of overlooked vintage subject matter with an emphasis on art, design, photography and culture. With an extensive array of rare images, Outré Journal presents a curated compendium of the unusual that takes its cues from cabinets of curiosities and journals of miscellany such as The Saturday Book of old. The focus on underground topics and pop culture extends across time and continents to include highlights such as: religious architecture in the Space Age, found photos and images of masked people, Satan and sin in sixties pop culture, four-eyed figures and other bizarre collectibles, Danish modern artist-designer Knud Albert, the murals and artwork of Anton LaVey, Los Angeles beatnik hangout Café Frankenstein, Ren Clark’s Tiki temple, the album cover art of Symphonie Fantastique, strange paintings and more.
