For decades Carl Jung's "Red Book" remained the most famous unpublished book in the history of psychology. Jung refused to publish it during his lifetime, and his heirs kept it locked up after he died. The "Red Book" recorded Jung's visionary paintings and laid out his radical ideas for a new kind of psychology.
