The Axeman of New Orleans Post Cards from @figstreetstudio

The Axeman of New Orleans Post Cards and on shirts too.

In 1919 local tune writer Joseph John Davilla wrote the song "The Mysterious Axman's Jazz (Don't Scare Me Papa)". Published by New Orleans based World's Music Publishing Company, the cover depicted a family playing music with frightened looks on their faces.
The 1945 book Gumbo Ya-Ya, A Collection of Louisiana Folk Tales includes a chapter on the Axeman entitled "Axeman's Jazz", which helped spark renewed interest in the murders. The book also reproduced the cover of the 1919 sheet music.
Writer Julie Smith used a fictionalized version of the Axeman events in her 1991 novel The Axeman's Jazz.
The Axeman killings are also referred to in the short story "Mussolini and the Axeman's Jazz" by Poppy Z. Brite, published in 1997.
The Australian rock band Beasts of Bourbon released an album in 1984 called "The Axeman's Jazz"
In Chuck Palahniuk's 2005 novel Haunted, the Axeman is mentioned in Sister Vigilante's short story.
The 2007 song "Deathjazz" by Las Vegas progressive rock band One Ton Project parallels the story of the Axeman.
In 2010, Rick Geary published The Terrible Axe-Man of New Orleans. The graphic novel is non-fiction and compiles much of the material known about the murderer.
A sentence from the Axeman's letter to The Times-Picayune is spoken at the beginning of Fila Brazillia's song "Tunstall and Californian Haddock."
In 2012, author and former federal agent Chuck Hustmyre's novelized version of the infamous axeman case was published under the title "THE AXMAN OF NEW ORLEANS."
In 2013, the miniseries American Horror Story: Coven features a "mythological creature" based on the Axeman of New Orleans simply named The Axeman.
