About this title


The runic alphabet is made up of symbols which correspond to a specific sound, they are also believed to be a source of ancient magic with healing and divinatory powers. This guide covers all aspects of the runes, including their use in meditation and personal development. Signs, symbols and alphabets; the runes in history; what the runes mean; the mysterious world of runes; weaving the web of wyrd; revealing the unseen.


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 Hudson
