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.

    I have not been able to get any information about the Research Society for Artistic Photography (Geijutsu Shashin Kenkyukai) and suspect that this is another example of plates from remaindered photo-magazines being rebound with a new title and imprint (see item below). No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
