When Carl Jung embarked on an extended self-exploration, the result was "The Red Book," a large, illuminated volume he created between 1914 and 1930. However, only a handful of people have ever seen it. Now, in a complete facsimile and translation, it is available to scholars and the general public.

This was an amazing book. After reading most of Jung's voluminous writings, which tended to be scholarly works, the personal touches in The Red Book Liber Novus, made Jung come alive for me. Jung was a mystic and a visionary. I think this book is almost required reading for anyone who wants to study the man and his work.

Already the Book has broaden my feel for a man whose works i spent 10 years reading. This is 2/3 of the collected works. My dreams intensified by just looking at the paintings of really a remarkable and underrated visual artist. It might be the sequel to Blake's 'Island in the moon' in spirit and not an reference to the style. It changes the meaning of that Blake's work for me. CGJ has always been a path of precognitive and synchronistic experience. I don't see how it cannot alter the reader or even the world.

I know that SPL didn't catalog this book, but really? Hallucinations during a mental breakdown? How about journey through an inner landscape?
I thought cataloging was supposed to be neutral.

This is an incredible publishing achievement. I'm amazed it's in circulation. If you have interest in psychology beyond the 101 level you must spend some time with this spectacular, oversized volume. The New Yorker did a great prior to publication piece around 2010. Recommended.

Hello. Could VIRL order more copies of "The Red Book" by Carl Jung? There are 18 holds on only one copy and even this copy doesn't seem available. Peace & Thanks!
