The Red Book by C. G Jung: This masterpiece comprises 15 years of Jung’s investigation of psychotherapy. From 1914 to 1930, he wrote and illustrated this approximately 200-page exploration. Diving into his own subconscious, he realized many of theories about individuation and the unconscious. It was displayed at several museums around the nation before eventually being dispersed to scholars and the general public. Talk about a hermetic inquiry…

Other Criteria: Confrontations with Twentieth Century Art by Leo Steinberg: In honor of the great Steinberg, I figured I’d look into what I haven’t read of his. I am always a sucker for hearing more from New York writers in the hey-day of the New York School, and Steinberg has been an illumination on the subject. His piece on Picasso’s ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,’ although not featured in the book, was a reading I distinctly remember for it’s lucid points and critical interpretation beyond the give-in of Picasso’s personal life or the standing of women in general. By incorporating Picasso’s technical concerns and adjustments into his deductions about the feminine gaze, he appropriated an invigorated interpretation of the piece. Truly inspiring, this book is a must-read.

 

Found this sofa via NYMag and am absolutely dying for it. It’s printed polyurethane on these squishy cushions that perfectly combines comfort and nature. Maybe for my next apartment…

(although i couldn’t find it on the website, it’s available through Moroso)
