     Alchemy - A Treasure House of Symbolism
Adam McLean

This large format book was issued in connection with my exhibition at the Embassy Gallery during the Edinburgh Festival 2007. It provides an overview and survey of the symbolism, gathered under three headings - Alchemy of the Cosmos, Alchemy of the Soul and Alchemy of Matter. The book shows my coloured versions of many of the intriguing alchemical emblems, with descriptions and analysis of their place in the history of alchemical imagery. It thus provides a simple introduction to the use of emblematic imagery in alchemy.
This book was designed by the Glasgow artist, Ronnie Heeps, who also helped curate the exhibition.

Large format A4 paperback. 50 pages. 64 coloured images.
