A pack of rabid monkeys invades a Mass at the cathedral. A beautiful Abyssinian slave, 6 feet, 7 inches tall and with perfect teeth, is auctioned off for her weight in gold. The remains of a girl, dead for years, are disinterred; her coppery hair has grown to be 73 feet long.
The crypt of a convent was being emptied to make way for a hotel; in one of the niches the bones of a girl were found, with a prodigious length of her hair still intact. Whether fictional or not--can old story-tellers know the difference? Sierva, the year-old daughter of the Marquis of Casalduero, is suspected of demonic possession and ordered by the local bishop into a convent for examination and exorcism.
Her examiner is Cayetano, a brilliant and zealous young priest. He is smitten by the girl with the endless train of copper hair. His admonishments turn to ardor and smuggled-in pastries. Flame and fuel, combined, ignite a mutual passion. Interrogated more and more harshly, she gives up and dies. The story is not the main thing but it is more than a pretext. For a few moments, she believes herself safe. She tries to get his attention, and he responds by abruptly braking the car and turning around to face her.
The reader understands that she is in jeopardy once more, a realization made all the more potent as she had believed herself safe at last. The story closes dramatically with Mrs. The Demon Lover.

Leading up to her debut album, the genre-blurring FKA Twigs made a name for herself on stunning visuals: music videos, EP covers, and even magazine shoots. This porcelain-sheen headshot was an exquisite introduction to the wonder of her music.
But it's her expression -- and the canted angle of the photo -- that make this so important. In , representation of black women in pop culture was political whether intentionally or not, and Aretha's quiet, un-posed album cover speaks volumes. Everything about Springsteen's persona is conveyed in this one image. The Boss is the epitome of blue collar America on this unforgettable album cover. Janis Joplin's final album, released after her death at age 27, features one of the era's most iconic images.
Joplin drapes herself over a Victoria Era loveseat, decked out in eye-catching San Francisco hippie garb, cradling a drink and a huge smile. The image is bittersweet: Alcohol reportedly played a role in Joplin's fatal heroin overdose, yet her radiant smile seems to transcend the sadness of the impending tragedy.
Featuring a nearly nude Jones in a seemingly superhuman pose, the art was actually a composite of the singer in a series of different poses, cut-and-pasted together for an unforgettable result.
While this isn't the album that introduced the world to Bowie's space-man alter ego, when music fans think of Ziggy Stardust, this is the image they see. The lightning-bolt eye makeup, the red mullet -- this is quintessential Bowie. Whatever Warhol created for the set was seemingly never used, but his concept of employing a working zipper on an album cover came to fruition on the cover of Sticky Fingers.
With photographs by Warhol focused on the bulging jeans of a still-unidentified male model and graphic design by Craig Braun, the set would earn a Grammy Award nomination for best album cover. Disney's Mickey Mouse shirt parody four decades later only reaffirmed its legend. One of metal's most iconic album covers, Judas Priest's British Steel -- depicting a hand emerging from studded leather holding a razor blade -- is also one of its most fascinating. How is the hand holding the blade without bleeding?
Does this cover capture the moment just before the blood bursts out and covers the blade? While many metal bands would compete to out-gross each other throughout the rest of the '80s, this simple, menacing image outlives them all. Taken from a Mati Klarwein painting he also did the cover for Miles Davis' Bitches Brew , the cover for Santana's Abraxas album is a gorgeously surreal psychedelic feast for the eyes.
Inspired by the Biblical story of the Annunciation, this painting gives us a naked, black Virgin Mary and a red angel with a conga between her legs. The London Calling cover simultaneously pays tribute to Elvis Presley while also blowing up his version of rock n' roll. The pink-and-green title letters mimic Presley's self-titled album cover, but the King probably never smashed a bass guitar on stage.
For the cover of their mainstream breakthrough LP, Blink enlisted adult actress Janine Lindemulder to put a highly suggestive -- and literal -- spin on the album title. The most iconic grunge album cover after Nirvana's Nevermind , Hole's Live Through This depicts a sobbing beauty queen with mascara running down her face.
This is the rare satiric album cover that still manages to be empathetic. Where to begin with this album cover? The image features the Beatles, in their Sgt.
