A rune may look like nothing more than a rock with a symbol etched into it. But according to The Complete Illustrated Guide to Runes, a rune is "literally a mystery containing the secrets of the inner structure of existence." Against a backdrop of vibrant, full-color photography and graphics, Nigel Pennick presents a comprehensive overview of rune history and usage, starting with its ancient roots and leading into a brief section on divination techniques. Pennick (author of Celtic Sacred Landscapes and The Pagan Book of Days) is foremost a European folk historian, so his orientation is more anthropological and cultural than instructional. Readers who want specific divination advice may want to start with The Book of Runes. --Gail HudsonAbout the Author:
