Retrospective: Thrifty Rune Set

(no longer in production)



■ Each set was
   individually handmade
   in England.

■ 24 runes + 1 spare of
   chosen Futhark.

■ I only used windfall or
   coppiced branches
   from woodland trees.

■ All other materials
   were  recycled.

■ Each set was
   empowered by
   ancient runic ritual.

■ Each set was supplied
   with full provenance.

■ P&P & tax was
   included in the price.


The runes supplied with this set were NOT varnished -
just plain, untreated wood.

This was a no frills, best-value set of the Elder (Viking) Futhark runes. The runes were fully empowered and ready to use, but simplicity and economy were the key features.

There were no options on rune wood or fabric color with this set, you had to take what was available. The usual woods were cottonwood, birch or ash, and the cotton drawstring bag might have been any color, whatever happened to be available at the time.

The runes were about 1 x ¾ x ⅜ ins (25 x 18 x 9 mm) minimum, and the glyphs were marked by the pokerwork technique.

The set also included a CD of "The Viking Runes - A Short Introduction" 27-page eBook plus some free stuff such as a rune screen-saver.
