These books are from a series of large drawings for a gallery exhibition. The three books capture three different dreams. Taking advice from Jung, Thielen has written them down for future reference. In the case with the books is a card with the Jung quote and attribution.
"I should advise you to put it all down as beautifully as you can - in some beautifully bound book ... It will seem as if you were making the visions banal - but then you need to do that - then you are freed from the power of them ... Then when these things are in some precious book you can go to the book & turn over the pages & for you are freed from the power of them .."
