This fresh-off-the-press book surely wets the appetite. The Red Book, or Liber Novus, is Carl Jung's magnum opus which has remained unpublished for 80 years.
In his late 30s, Jung started writing a book called The Red Book. The Red Book is part journal, part mythological novel that takes the reader through Jung’s fantasies — hallucinations he self-induced to try and get to the core of his unconscious. … The book detailed an unabashedly psychedelic voyage through his own mind, a vaguely Homeric progression of encounters with strange people taking place in a curious, shifting dreamscape. Writing in German, he filled 205 oversize pages with elaborate calligraphy and with richly hued, staggeringly detailed paintings. More
With over 400 pages of full-colour at a big size, 18 x 12 x 2 inches (9.6 pounds in weight), this book does not come cheap. The price at £120 or USD195 obviously is not a casual purchase. Time to start petitioning rich relatives for Christmas? Well, too bad. Don't have any from my side.
Upon careful calculation, it is comparatively cheaper for me to buy the book from Amazon US. Total cost is USD124.05 = SGD173.42 [USD114.07 (after 42% discount) plus shipping charge USD9.98]. Not so bad after all. I'll need to fork out SGD67 more if getting it from the UK site.
