"[Thorsson] delves deeply into rune history and lore, its basis in metaphysical thought and mysticism, thus presenting the reader with a much fuller picture of the religious and magical traditions which underlie modern Western culture....An important and significant work." -Prediction Magazine
Runes are the ancient Norse alphabet used for communication, divination, and magical work. In Futhark, American runologist Edred Thorsson introduces readers to the 24 runes of the Elder Futhark, their definitions and mystic properties.

The runic system of magic and mysticism is one of the most powerful forms of metaphysical thought available to the Western world. This bestselling classic book on Runes continues to be required reading for those who seek true knowledge of the mystery of the Runes.

Thorsson's presentation of this powerful system is lucid and profound and provides a valuable tool for spiritual transformation and self-development.

Edred Thorsson received his doctorate in Germanic languages and Medieval Studies from the University of Texas. He is the translator of Guido von Listís The Secret of Runes, and a former university professor of humanities. He is the author of the bestselling Futhark: A Handbook of Rune Magic, and Runelore. Thorsson lives in Texas, where he practices rune magic.
