"It is still possible, even now, for publishers to do something we have never seen before. The Book of Symbols is a project of mind-blowing ambition and reach, and a book with an almost old-fashioned educational appeal. Bright, optimistic, bountiful and brainy, it makes you reel with a sense of wonder at the complexity of the human mind and soul… You can’t ask for more than that."— Creative Review, London, Reino Unido
"What we want to do is to go into an image and let the image speak on its own, to go into the deeper meaning of it."— The Wall Street Journal, New York, Estados Unidos
"Part symbol dictionary, part essay anthology, TASCHEN's The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images is an exquisitely crafted, 5 pound, 810 page image-rich reference book recently released by ARAS, or The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism - an organization beloved by Jungians, artists, and scholars alike."— Phantasmaphile.com, Estados Unidos
"The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images is an invaluable resource for researchers, art lovers and thinkers. Historians and art history buffs will enjoy the thought provoking essays and the images they accompany. As mentioned earlier, poetry, comparisons and connections abound along with changing uses of ancient symbols... The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images gets an enthusiastic 'buy' recommendation and a warning. Enjoy studying symbols, signs, metaphors and poetry, but remember; they may not mean the same thing today as they did in the beginning."— Technorati.com, Estados Unidos
"The publication of The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images is the child of an unlikely marriage between ARAS, a hidden gem of an archive, with TASCHEN the daring and brilliant world wide publisher of fine art books. The union of ARAS and TASCHEN is not so strange when one realizes that both organizations are passionate about depth and beauty. Each is willing to spend the time, money, and human energy to bring a unique vision into the world. The result is a gorgeous bargain of a book which follows in the ground breaking tradition of C.G. Jung's Man and His Symbols."— HuffingtonPost.com, Estados Unidos
"Problema: come raccogliere in un solo libro tutto l'incoscio del mondo? La domanda da un milione di simboli ha finalmente una risposta: sorprende che ci siano voluti 14 anni per organizzarla? L'opera enciclopedica ha un nome che è tutto un programma, Il libro dei simboli, e una firma prestigiosissima, quella dell'Aras, cioè L'Archivio per la ricerca del simbolismo archetipo ... Un grande, dottissimo manuale che sembra la popolarissima smorfia, un capolavoro di iconologia lungo 800 pagine, una sfida che forse soltanto TASCHEN, la casa editrice specializzata in libri d'arte e di fotografia, poteva raccogliere ... 'Non conosco particolarmente il concetto di archetipo di Jung' ha spiegato l'editore Benedikt Taschen 'ma sono sempre stato interessato al linguaggio delle immagini: da dove vengono e che cosa comunicano'. Che poi è quello che rende il volume prezioso e intellegibile anche per chi non voglia avventurarsi nei meandri della psicoanalisi."— XL - La Repubblica, Roma, Italy
"Life is full of symbols. They pop up everywhere. In literature, painting, architecture, the film world, and especially in religions rites and when we dream. Some you have control over, others have an interest that is fading into the mist. The publisher TASCHEN's The Book of Symbols offers a wealth of symbols and an explanation of their meanings. The book is like a large archive where dream readers and image interpreters can dive in. The text is written in an easily understandable manner, and the book contains over 800 illustrations in color and 350 essays written by a team of writers on the symbols. A treasure trove for connoisseurs. The book is based on Carl Gustav Jung's work on archetypes and the collective unconscious."— Jyllands-Posten, Copenhagen, Dinamarca
"After a long search, ARAS found a sympathetic soul in Benedikt Taschen, a publisher known for producing big and almost fetishistically exquisite books. ...evoking different notions by surrounding them with various kinds of human observations is what ARAS does, both in The Book Of Symbols, and in the archive it maintains on 39th Street, as well as in an online database."— The Wall Street Journal, New York, Estados Unidos
"The Book of Symbols is an invaluable reference book that details the use of symbols in our history."— Confessionsofanoverworkedmom.com, Estados Unidos
"When it comes to excellence in cutting-edge publishing, TASCHEN has been leading the pack for some time. This 800-page reference is a compressed physical version of the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism (ARAS) in New York City, which uses Carl Jung’s ‘archetype’ as a springboard into the human psyche. Its pages are durable but incredibly thin, making for no less than the deepest of dives into the human mind… Like most TASCHEN tomes, it has bells and whistles, such as five different attached cloth bookmarks, hundreds of colorful photos and a durable cover. If there is an award for best reference book of 2010, this is a top five contender and ultimately the author is you."— DigBoston.com, Estados Unidos
