The author’s comments:
This book I felt the utmost need to write! Being amazed at the immense amount of inconsistencies existing within modern Rune lore, mainly through limited access to old authentic sources. Thus I present an in-depth survey of all wisdom required to decipher the enigmatic sign when used as archetypal symbols, as compared to their more common usage as sound-imitating letters.
Furthermore, it explains why and how the currently cherished Elder Futhark expressions are purely fictional, while clarifying their late 19th century methods of re-creation. If tolerating indecorous Runic traditions, please ignore this volume!
