"The years, of which I have spoken to you, when I pursued the inner images, were the most important time of my life... elaborating what had burst forth from the unconscious and flooded me like an enigmatic stream and threatened to break me." C.G. Jung, 1957
What is the Red Book? Dream journal, record of self-experimentation, chronicle of one man's descent into mental illness, or a transcendent work of art? Filled with otherworldly images and conversations with gods and devils, the Red Book was handwritten in illuminated blackletter and includes over 200 extraordinary and beautiful illustrations. Though its existence has been known of for over 8 decades, it has never before been published in any form or made available to the public.
