"This book contains a number of remarkable essays, including the introduction by editor Susan Rowland. These essays make important use of Jung's psychology in their exploration of the psychic interiority of art as well as offering a 'renewed and numious space for the making, appreciation and criticism of art in our time'... I believe the essays in this book have much to contribute to the interface between Jungian concepts and the practice, appreciation and assessment of the creative arts." - Mary Dougherty, Journal of Analytical Psychology, Vol. 54, No. 4, 2009
