Carl Jung's legendary Red Book at the Rubin Museum of Art in NYC

Roundup: Pop Culture & the Arts ... Movies, Documentaries and Museum Exhibits

On October 7th, Carl Jung’s legendary Red Book (Liber Novus) will finally be available to the general public. The original book will be on display at the Rubin Museum of Art in New York City, the same day W.W. Norton & Company releases the book in both a German and English translation.

There is quite a lot of mystery surrounding this 95-year-old unpublished work that has been locked in a safe deposit box in Switzerland ever since Jung’s passing in 1961. The author/editor, Sonu Shamdasani, a preeminent Jung historian at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London, managed to find a few copies of this rare book and with them in hand finally persuaded Jung’s family to publish the work.
