Runes are the magical alphabet of central and northern Europe. Though they were used as a form of writing, particularly for short magical inscriptions, their primary use was divination and decision making. Meaning “whisper” or “secret”, runes are a system of symbols that can connect you with your ancestors, spirits, and the living world. Guy Ogilvy, one of the world’s best known rune specialists has created a wonderfully illustrated handbook full of detailed interpretations and advice. The fully illustrated book is accompanied by 24 specially commissioned beechwood runes from Northern Europe.
