Runes: Theory and Practiceby Galina Krasskova

:Runes: Theory and Practice provides a thorough examination of the Norse runes. It will enable a beginner to delve effectively into their usage, but will also challenge the experienced rune-worker to better and deepen his or her understanding of these mysteries. Runes: Theory and Practice begins with an explication of the story of Odin, the Norse god who won the runes by sacrificing himself on the World Tree. It continues by examining each of the individual runes in turn, both the Elder Futhark and the lesser-known Anglo-Saxon Futhorc. Each rune is studied not only from a historical viewpoint, but also from the perspective of a modern practitioner. You will be introduced to the practice of galdr, the proper way to sacrifice to the runes, their magical usage, and the art of reading for divination. Most importantly, Runes: Theory and Practice specifically addresses the runes as living spirits and provides guidance on developing a working relationship with these otherworldly allies.

pick up Krasskova's text. I found this book to be well-written (aside from the occasional typo), well-researched, and heart-felt. Krasskova obviously has a lot of experience working with the runes, and that comes through on every page. I found her argument that the runes are alive -- as opposed to inanimate tools -- very insightful. Highly recommended.
Very extensive book and more Heathen focused than say Thorsson's book. Also includes a section on the additional Angle Saxon runes.
unless you want to be singing and smearing your own blood on your runes, dont get this book. its not an intro ductory book either. it just kinda jumps right in. she says to make a good stong conection with your runes taht you have to sing to them and smear you own blood on them. i mean come on thats just scary. ive seen people use runes and never in my life have i seen them break out in song or bloody them up. im sorry i CAN NOT recommend this book to ANYONE!!!!!!!
