We can't wait to get our hands on Runes: The Icelandic Book of Fuþark, a book we are extremely proud of. We have been looking for the perfect way to present the runic systems in a book, since we published Sorcerer's Screed in 2015. We agreed that the book would have to stand firmly on academic grounds as well as being extremely accessible, enlightening and not the least: a beautiful object.
Last year we finally found and assembled our dream team:
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.
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 theIcelandic Fuþark.
By presenting the three runic systems readers will be able to delve deeper into the meaning of each individual rune as well as gaining a better understanding of how the runic systems have evolved.
