At the beginning of 2000 I issued the first CD-Rom of my coloured images. This was immediately recognised as a key resource for those wanting to study alchemical symbolism. In 2003 I produced a second volume, and later in 2004 a third volume, and now I am able to release this fourth collection.
In colouring these I made use of my intensive study of the original coloured manuscripts of the 15th to 18th centuries, which have been the main focus of my research over many years.
I have found that contemplation and meditation on these handcoloured images helps us resonate with and enter into the complex symbolic world of alchemy. In the autumn of 1999 I began to make these images available in the form of high quality prints that people could frame or use for study. In late 1999 I began my e-mail study course on the interpretation of alchemical imagery and I drew upon this resource for the course lessons.
Sorry these CD-Roms are now discontinued.
Many of the images are available in the Coloured Alchemical Sequences book
