Jung’s Red Book

I was recently lucky enough to see Carl Jung’s Red Book which was at The Rubin Museum of Art in NYC, on display for the first time ever. It has recently been published in a facimile edition. Jung, the famous psychologist worked on the Red Book between 1914 and 1930, it is a fascinating documentation of his hallucinations, all written in beautiful calligraphy with amazing illustrations. As a book artist, calligrapher and lover of  weird and intricate illustration, I was very inspired by this work. Check out theses images at the BBC Today. This was my first visit to The Rubin, I will be returning, they have some fabulous Asian art exhibitions.
