Hidden Treasure - An Encyclopedia of Archetypal Symbolism

Book cover

An Encylopedia of Archetypal Symbolism, Volume Two: The Body

by George R. Elder

The glory days of Jungian psychology publishing were over before we got to volume three of this projected multi-volume series, but what a wonder volume two is! The large-format hardcover with its full page images of art related to the body, from all times and places, is a delight to spend some time with. The commentary on each image analyses its archetypal significance. This book likely still occupies a place of honor on the coffee table of many a Jungian analyst. It would look good on yours too.
