Glenn Bray is a renowned collector and archivist of underground comix, low and high art, and the creator of the critically acclaimed books LIBRARY and The Blighted Eye. Here he has arranged neuron-firing, free-associative found images as a series of two-page spreads that comment and reflect upon each other. By turns darkly funny, apocalyptic and blissful, SCRAP BOOK is a subconscious flow of words and pictures that no one was supposed to save or revere. You’ll see some famous names in the art and cartooning world here alongside anonymous tabloid clippings, forgotten advertisements and bizarre things that somehow wandered into the mainstream.

Previously only available in an extremely limited run, this 532-page 8 1/2” x 12” hardcover collection of found art has now been restored and restructured for this exclusive release, with additional pages, new cover, slick new endpapers, and a limited edition art print!

The Book

From visually degraded examples of Xeroxed office humor to elegant works of full-color art, SCRAP BOOK is full of zany inspiration, moments of meditation and a constant reminder of its motto: “No Sense Makes Sense.” Wrestlers, monsters, devils, freaks, strippers, fetish models, stag queens, skeletons, body parts, Aztec sculptures, gorillas, dinosaurs, and magic will befuddle your brain and slap your subconscious silly. This guided tour through pre-computer digital-age hand-collaged scrapbooks is a kind of compact reference or visual index that Glenn Bray shares with other like-minded artists and collectors. His deliberate curating and creating of collections can be seen as a form of artwork in itself, and is largely self-taught and unique in the artworld.


"I started putting together old scrapbooks, those big old 1940’s and 1950’s books with blank pulp pages tied together with string that contained the worst level archival pulp paper imaginable, back in the late 1960’s. You could buy these old scrapbooks at the Salvation Army for $1.00, and sometimes they even were half-filled with other people’s cut-outs. (And yes, I DID save and print some!)


I was collecting a lot of comic books and magazines at the time, but a lot of other zines and newspapers that were passing though my hands didn’t need complete saving; maybe a photo here and an article there. I would cut them and save them in a pile until I thought I had enough to combine some sense of imagery on a few pages. This lasted way until the late 1990’s, and possibly a bit beyond, when by then you could just save image files on the computer.


I must have had at least a dozen different sized filled scrapbooks by the early 2000’s and the paper was starting to mummify, also killing off my saved cargo, and I realized that in a few years they were going to turn to dust.


So I scanned most of the pages, bought some really nice paper and went to STAPLES with a flash drive and told them to just run half of them through the printer, turn them over and complete the printing on the other side. Voilà!, beautifully preserved prints. I had the one copy bound by a professional bookbinder and put it on my shelf.


Over the years, visitors would look at my one copy and ask if I couldn’t make another for them.


Working with Frank Young as co-editors on the Art Young book, he had sent me some print-on-demand books that he had produced. He convinced me that I should also do one. With fresh eyes on the old pages, I was able to re-direct/re-arrange the pages in a more meaningful way, plus add a lot of stuff that hadn’t found a place in my Blighted Eye book."

"There are many different sorts of collectors. Freud attributed the condition to bad toilet training, but he was often something of a kill-joy. Of course, at one end of the spectrum there are The Hoarders, those who turn their homes into dangerous obstacle courses, with treasures and trash combustibly mixed together. Anyone who ever walked through Bill Blackbeard's large Victorian home, The San Francisco Academy of Comic Art, a three-story house with only narrow paths between the stacked-high bound volumes of newspapers absolutely everywhere but the bathroom (for fear of water-damage), might have diagnosed him with that pathology. Though discerning and prescient (Bill knew the difference between trash and treasure better than most everyone) he tried to collect it All... and it has served my art form well.

Me, I've got nasty hoarding traits as well (you must visit my collection of half-dead batteries and dried-up markers sometime) but am more of a Casual Accumulator, the sort who allows all kinds of second-rate books and artwork to pile up alongside the jewels I sometimes had to hunt for years to find. And I don't take proper care of the valuables entrusted to me -- none of my books stay in mint condition long. We won't bother with The Mercenaries, the sick breed that collects mainly to turn a buck. Let's instead move on to acknowledge those at the most rarified end of the spectrum: The Connoisseurs who single-mindedly devote their lives to gathering around them the objects they love....
GLENN BRAY is an especially rare bird, a Generous Connoisseur, willing to share and lend his precious discoveries for exhibitions and books. With the eye of an artist, he has rescued and curated a kind of work most of the world has no use for. Basil Wolverton, Harvey Kurtzman and a number of other EC artists, for example, are in safe hands for posterity thanks to him. And his savvy collection of underground and alternative comic art, with a special predilection for "outsiders" like Rory Hayes, is one of a kind. (Though only a member of that vanishing American species, The actual Middle Class, Glenn often put up big pots of his money toward becoming a patron saint for some of those marginal outsiders, commissioning and encouraging their work when few others cared.) I thank him for his lifelong compulsion and for generously sharing so many of its results."

This The Blighted Eye - Original Comic Art from the Glenn Bray Collection (Fantagraphics) review by Cartoonist Kayfabe is also a good introduction to my work.


The book is complete and will be going to the printer within a month after the end of the campaign. From there, expected delivery time to our fulfillment center is roughly three months from approve-to-print date.


We're aiming for a December 2023 delivery date (just in time for the holidays!) and Zoop will keep supporters updated throughout this process.

Frequently asked questions

Yes! We encourage you to get more than 1 item! That could be multiple copies of the same reward, or you can mix and match rewards! There is no limit, unless otherwise stated in the reward description.

Our campaigns are for a worldwide audience unless stated otherwise in the campaign. All international orders are sold with the terms DAP (Delivered At Place). You are responsible for any duties and taxes required for the shipment's entry into your country. Our carriers may require you to pay taxes and fees related to importation and customs brokerage of your shipment -- but if your item is really low in value, it may fall under the customs de minimis of most countries. For more information, please contact USPS

Zoop does not store or keep your credit card info. Stripe simply holds the credit card info until the end of a successful campaign and then charges it. It is strictly for this one time use and won't charge it ever again.

You can either access the transaction through your account and click the cancel button, or contact us at hello@wearezoop.com and we'll cancel it for you and send back a confirmation email.


Cancellations of rewards or add-ons of $500 or more must be made before there are 72 hours left in the campaign. The reason for this is it can have a negative effect on the tally of the campaign. If it is a limited reward or add-on, there may not be sufficient time for someone else to purchase it, leaving the campaign possibly not funded. We ask for your courtesy of the people running the campaign when making these decisions.

Please use the notes section in the last checkout step or you could e-mail us at hello@wearezoop.com with that info during the campaign if you'd like to get it out of the way. Otherwise, we'll be reaching out to all supporters of rewards that require feedback shortly after the campaign is over.

If you want to make changes, you should first cancel your original order and then start over with a new one. If you don't do that and simply process an additional order, the way our system is currently set up you may end up being overcharged for shipping -- which we could remedy for you, but it just takes that extra step of catching it and crediting you back the extra shipping, so please try the prior way first.

Rewards are the priority items that the creators have chosen for the campaign. Add-Ons are meant to be secondary items that are 'unlocked' after you buy something from the Reward level. There are no restrictions on buying Rewards, but you can only buy Add-Ons if you've bought a Reward. Zoop sets this up under the direction of the creators. Some may choose to only have Rewards, some may choose an even balance of Rewards and Add-Ons, and others may choose to only have one or two Rewards with the rest of the items being Add-Ons.

Since we have an a la carte rewards system, shipping rates will vary from supporter to supporter. We use a weight-based calculation system in your checkout cart, though, so, after you enter your country, you'll be able to see it calculated in real time with each item you add.

No - this is it! We're essentially your in-campaign pledge manager. If you are interested in supporting these creators, this is the time to do it!  And it's the exact reason we allow you to purchase as many rewards as you want during the campaign!
