The Red Book (Liber Novus) by C.G. Jung
212 color illustrations. Includes Sonu Shamdasani’s introductory essay and the full translation of Jung’s work. From the publisher: "When Carl Jung embarked on an extended self-exploration he called his “confrontation with the unconscious,” the heart of it was The Red Book, a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930. Here he developed his principle theories—of the archetypes, the collective unconscious, and the process of individuation—that transformed psychotherapy from a practice concerned with treatment of the sick into a means for higher development of the personality. It is an astonishing example of calligraphy and art on a par with The Book of Kells and the illuminated manuscripts of William Blake."
