What just happened?

To celebrate Vikings Live, we have replaced our Roman alphabet with the runic alphabet used by the Vikings, the Scandinavian ‘Younger Futhark’. The ‘Younger Futhark’ has only 16 letters, so we have used some of the runic letters more than once or combined two runes for one Roman letter.

For an excellent introduction to runes, we recommend Martin Findell’s book published by British Museum Press.

    A superb achievement by Gocho. Taken between April 1978 and October 1980 these colour images show the essence of his style: Humans in every-day situations that are made extraordinary by the light, the focus, the colour, or/and the expression. Clearly he selected his images carefully and there is a hair's breadth between the common and the genius in these images. This is Gocho's last work before his untimely death on June 2nd, 1983 and his only work in colour. Very rare. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
