Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism Publishes New Book

A Wall Street Journal article from December 1, 2010 annnounces the publication of a new book by the New York branch of the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism. The organization’s holdings are a collection of 17,000 “mythological, ritualistic and symbolic” images meant to catalog, more or less, the whole of our collective human unconscious. The new book is The Book of Symbols, an 810-page volume assembled by ARAS in New York and published by art-book imprint Taschen. It took ARAS curator Ami Ronnberg and a core group of five women (plus an army of around 50 writers commissioned for the essays) 14 years to complete.

ARAS offers a free quarterly newsletter available via email and for $100/year you can join the ARAS Online to be able to access their entire holdings. The new book is surprisingly inexpensive ($26.39 on Amazon) for a 810-page, full color book.
