It gathers together a wonderful variety of beliefs and representations of life after death that will fascinate readers of all ages and interests.

Accompanied by an unprecedented collection of images, The Devil's Atlas provides a highly readable trove of surprising facts and narratives. It showcases inventive torture methods awaiting sinners, colourful eccentric catalogues of demons, angels, and assorted death deities.

In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with it's social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it. - Ernst Fischer
