'Why do angels gave wings? Why do devils have horns? Why do we unhesitatingly conjur up the former in Heaven and the latter in the fires of Hell? These creatures of the spirit, their nature and appearance, their lives with respect to humankind, the places they inhabit, and their complex journeys through time are the subjects of the images illustrated and discussed in this book.' -from the Introduction
