"Neo emblemata nova celebrates the work of Michael Maier. His Atalanta fugiens or Emblemata nova was first published in Frankfurt in 1617. The images reproduced here are from the second edition, dated 1618. The visual representations of alchemical processes and materials in his book have been for me a rich source of inspiration ..."--Colophon.
