Here’s 12 Intense Pictures From Carl Jung’s Red Book.

Carl Jung’s Red Book is filled with absolutely amazing art the famous psychologist composed privately for years. Here’s 12 of the best images.

Therapist, philosopher, speaker to the dead: was there anything Carl Jung couldn’t do? It just so happens that he also had a knack for image-making. By “knack,” we mean he was pretty damn good, not like other celebrity painters (we’re looking at you George W. Bush). The text of Carl Jung’s The Red Book: Liber Novus is interspersed with dazzling spreads of mandalas, dragons, spirit-beings and what look like UFOs. If he was born decades later, Carl Jung could have had a flourishing career as a graphic novelist. Or, centuries earlier, as a manuscript illuminator. Alas, one can dream. Here’s a look at a few of our favourite illustrations accompanied with some lighthearted commentary.
