    It's a kind of magic...

    This is an absolutely fantastic book for any who are looking to learn about nearly any aspect of runecraft. I myself have often tried to study runes but would only find partial information on a few of the runes and never on how to make runestones. As a skilled practioner of magick, I can recommend this book to beginners or advanced adepts, such as myself. While most of my magickal experience is more of the hermetic sort, I know what works, and believe you me every instruction in this book works, and, if you have just half an ounce of imagination, and about the same amount of intelligence, you can create and add your own aspects, and make this a very powerful craft indeed!

    An incredible book for those looking to learn!

    This is an excellent book. Short, concise summaries, as well as accurate histories of runes. This would be a fantastic book for anyone wanting to learn about runes, as well as anyone looking for a new perspective on a classic topic.
