C. G. Jung - The Red Book
Liber Novus: The Red Book of C. G. Jung
by Sonu Shamdasani
In this first public lecture on C. G. Jung’s legendary Red Book, Jungian scholar and Red Book editor Sonu Shamdasani will present the contents and images from Jung’s “Liber Novus” or Red Book. In this private illuminated journal, Jung engaged the inner world of his psyche and its relation to the outer world of collective events in the first half of the twentieth century through text and illustrations.
Fifty years after C. G. Jung’s death, and twenty years en route to publication, the Philemon Foundation is pleased to announce the publication of the Red Book, translated by Mark Kyburz, John Peck and Sonu Shamdasani. This lecture co-incides with the release of the Red Book, published by W. W. Norton & Co, and the opening of the Red Book exhibit at the Rubin Museum of Art, New York.
Sonu Shamdasani is Philemon Professor of Jung History at the Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London, and General Editor of the Philemon Foundation. The Red Book is the third volume of the Philemon Series.

This has made the New York Times Magazine in what is really a nice piece of reporting I think: The Holy Grail of the Unconscious
The NYTimes piece spent many days near the top of their Most Emailed list. It appeared on Sept 20 and by the end of the month was the 5th most frequently emailed article in September. The book can be bought from Barnes&Noble online now (as of Sept 30), and on Dec 4th, from amazon.com.
And my thanks to "Angus" for pointing out this 3 minute YouTube Video from WWNorton "The Making of the Red Book."
Also - back in September there was this WBUR Radio Program on the then-forthcoming Red Book, with some linked images from the book: Carl Jung's Secret Book.
