HELL: THE PEOPLE AND PLACES (US EDITION)

Regular price

Whether it’s a real place, a human construct, an idea, or a superstition, hell is a grotesque demimonde in literature, cultures, religions, and folklore throughout the ages. There are many different hells to be found, each one distressing in its own way. From the imaginations of Seymour Chwast and Steven Heller, Hell offers a feast of chillingly hilarious graphic art and illuminating content that comprehensively plumbs the multiple depths of the underworld.

Those who wish to venture on this dangerous journey beyond the gates of the underworld will find their guides in two extraordinary authors and graphic designers: Seymour Chwast and Steven Heller. And like Dante in the footsteps of Virgil, they will be able to navigate their way through the burning (or icy!) dark realms that lurk in the heart of the human imagination— the Jewish Gehenna, the Sunni Jahannam, the Swahili Jehanum, the Mayan Xibalba, and many others—as well as all the characters who have created hell, visited it, or been involved in more or less unfortunate descents into it.

Equally appealing to fans of the literary hellscape of Dante’s Inferno, the bright utopia of The Good Place, and the dark humour of Edward Gorey, Hell offers a feast of chillingly hilarious graphic art and illuminating content that comprehensively plumbs the multiple depths of the underworld.
