The Book of Runes is something very special: a part of the ancient past and, perhaps, a part of your future. Based on a tradition over one thousand years old, the runes are seen by many as a contemporary oracle and collectively, have established themselves as a remarkable aid in practical decision-making. A huge success with over 900,000 copies sold since its original publication in 1983, The Book of Runes has proved to be a modern classic.
For this 25th anniversary of the work, author Ralph H. Blum has expanded and refined the runic system, making the runes one of the most profoundly useful self-help tools of the new century.
Ralph H. Blum is the author of The Book of Runes, Rune Play, Rune Cards, and a Little Book of Runic Wisdom, and co-author of Healing Runes (with Susan Loughan), The Serenity Runes (with Susan Loughan and Bronwyn Jones), and Relationship Runes - A Compass for the Heart (with Bronwyn Jones). Ralph Blum has been working with the Runes as a tool for self-counseling since 1979. Hardcover, Tenth Anniversary Edition, 160 pages.
Published December 1st 1993 by St. Martin's PressIncludes a set of 25 Runes.
