Summary, etc.: "Whether it is a real place, a human construct, an idea or a superstition, hell holds a place of honor in culture, literature, and religion throughout the ages. Journey beyond the gates of the underworld into diverse and unique versions of hell, with two extraordinary guides: Seymour Chwast and Steven Heller. Like Dante in the footsteps of Virgil, you will navigate through the most 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--and meet all the characters who have created hell, visited it, or been involved in more or less unfortunate descents into it"--Back cover.
