Holy cards provide handy, portable devotional images of the saints, and are important to Catholics as objects of daily ritual. Many carry them for protection or out of loyalty to a patron saint. This volume provides a survey of this devotional art and as well as a gallery of saints organized thematically along with brief biographies, attributes, and powers.
