The original guide on how to spot and identify demons and other subversive spirits and what to do next!

Demons, fairies and fallen angels are everywhere. They lurk at crossroads, crouch behind doors, hide in trees, slip into beds, wait in caves, hover at weddings and childbirths, disguise themselves as friends and relatives and even pretend to be you! They are powerful; they are protean; they are enchanting. And, to the uninformed, they are often invisible.

This illustrated guide the first of its kind reveals the remarkable permutations of the demon and fairy species worldwide. Packed with lore about each demon, detailing its origins, the culture surrounding it, and its reputed antics and exploits, this is a fascinating exploration of global mythologies. Perfect for the armchair traveller and the intrepid, seasoned demon-spotter alike, this complete guide of subversive spirits offers a behind-the-scenes look at the devilish mishaps, impish irritations and demonic devastations that can punctuate our lives.

Be warned: demon-watching is thrilling, transforming and even addictive. Soon A Field guide to Demons will become absolutely indispensable in every household!
