A beautiful alchemical picture book


Jörg Völlnagel, Alchemie. Die königliche Kunst. München, Hirmer, 2012.

The library recently acquired Vollnägel’s work on the royal art of alchemy, published by Hirmer Verlag. It is a beautiful and colourful book taking the reader on a journey through the Royal Art of Alchemy and its visual treasures. In the book you will find explanations about alchemical symbolism, the Splendor Solis Series, but also modern artworks with a marked alchemical touch.
