The Imagery of C.G. Jung

The exhibition, “The Red Book of C. G. Jung: Creation of a New Cosmology,” opening Oct. 7, at the Rubin Museum of Art will be built around the first public display of Carl Jung’s legendary Red Book.

The Red Book, a large, leather bound, illuminated volume that Jung created between 1914 and 1930, and which contained the nucleus of his later works. While Jung considered the Red Book, or Liber Novus (New Book) to be the central work in his oeuvre, it has remained unpublished till this day, and unavailable for study and unseen by the public.

The volume, exactly the same size as the original, consists of a full facsimile of Jung’s work, printed on the highest quality paper and with exquisite attention paid to reproducing Jung’s calligraphy and paintings as faithfully as possible. via phantasmaphile
