From Selected Letters C.G. Jung Volume 2:

Introduction to Picture Interpretation: According to C.G. Jung by Theodor Abt

A preeminent synopsis of the visual analytics of archetypal psychology of art

Exceptional in its clarity and brevity, this book casts the skills of visual arts education into a practical psychological mode. Stimulating and immediately applicable, it instructs eye and mind into ways of significant seeing and thinking. It introduces to the public a way the concrete unconscious communicates expressively by symbol and dream in our cultural artefacts. [Paul's Amazon review]
