Jung's "Big Red Book" A look inside!

Thought i would post some of the images found in Mr. Jung's Surreal chronicle of his inner universe; "The Big Red Book". A book that..

Quote:

Until recently,"had scarcely been seen by anyone outside the extended family of his descendants,"

Also i found a "making of" video. Enjoy, friends!

beautiful artwork, thank you for posting this!

You can really see it can't you? just as J.A. Knapp and Hall that art stuns you, and for a minute, "the self" comes out. I can feel it even as i look at this tome, when the spirit moves and writes a work that will change the world forever. many of the things Jung went through in his own mind, i see myself go through, and understand. In other words, if i sat down with Freud he would analyze me; if i sat down with Jung, we'd have a conversation.

...I forgot how I got here but everyone seems to be heading off in that direction. I hope someone brought food. I have a feeling this is going to be a long journey................

His old mentor Freud might have had a thing or two to say about the third illustration... :3

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...

I suspect even Freud would be lost for words to explain the Little People living on Jung's johnson.

In that case I strongly urge you to seek a psychiatrist.

Too late for me, but you might still make it ;)

You people read too much into things.

Freud himself said, sometimes a penis is just a penis. Or something like that.

All art and sketches contained in the white vellum of this magnificent, and quite literally , "Red Book" where drawn by C.G. Jung.

Quote:

The title of the book isn't a metaphor: it really is red. A reproduction of The Red Book was published in October — the original is currently under glass at the Rubin and is supplemented by displays of the author's notes, sketches and paintings.

Quote:

Within the book, accounts of Jung's "visions, fantasies and dreams are punctuated with his paintings, images that now appear as uncanny anticipations of New Age folk art of the late 20th century," Mr. Rothstein writes. "They display abstract symmetrical floral designs Jung came to identify as mandalas, along with almost childlike renderings of flames, trees, dragons and snakes, all in striking, bold colors."

The Red Book of C.G. Jung: Creation of a New Cosmology," is a new exhibition at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York, it offers a public look at a private chronicle of Carl Jung which has,until now, been kept in the Shadow. (no jungian-pun intended)

I recommend that if you're in the L.A. area, that you come on over and take a look.

Step Through.

Just to let you all know, i picked up my copy of The Red Book today, from the C.G. Jung institute of Los Angeles. When i get a chance to borrow a camera from a friend, i will take some pictures of the book that haven't been shown online yet!. I must say, it is a beautiful book. It's got to be the LARGEST book i have ever owned. It weighs a ton. :p lol

Step Through.
