RUNES: THE ICELANDIC BOOK OF FUÞARK

Regular price $37.00

Tax included.

"The book is based on academic studies but presents the three runic systems in an accessible manner, allowing the readers to delve deeper into the meaning of each individual rune as well as gaining a better understanding of how the runic systems have evolved.

Infused with Norse mythology, the Fuþark runes still serve as a vital key to the cultural heritage of the Icelandic people. Runes: The Icelandic Book of Fuþark introduces three different but related forms of runic systems in a chronological order: the Elder Fuþark, the Younger Fuþark and the Icelandic Fuþark.

People have been intrigued about Fuþark runes for centuries as their symbolism and meaning have been shrouded in mystery. They were used in witchcraft and to foresee the future but they were also the main method of writing and recording before the Latin writing systems made their way into Northern Europe.

Teresa Dröfn Freysdóttir Njarðvík, who despite of her young age is an experienced scholar, specialising in Icelandic medieval manuscripts and runes. She collected information about the three runic systems, edited and wrote the text. 

Siggi Odds is a young and exciting graphic designer who has received numerous awards for his work. Siggi caught our eye with an exhilarating exhibition on a project of his involving the Fuþark rune alphabet. 

We are extremely proud of the book and find that Teresa's and Siggi's passion for runes is the absolute key ingredient.
