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.

    Another specialist publication by ARS (jap. Arusu), this magazine was founded in October 1936 by Suzuki Hachiro (see item 92). Suzuki had previously been involved in editing the 20 vol. Ars Complete Course in New Photography (Ars Saishin Shashin Daikoza, 1935-36) and the present magazine followed on from there, explaining to newcomers techniques in the latest trends in artistic/professional photography. Vol. 3, no. 11 contains an article by Morooka Koji on bridges in Tokyo, while vol. 4, nos. 5 & 6 refer to Sakata Minoru's 'Zokei Shashin'. Together with 'Camera' and 'Shashin Salon' the present magazine was merged into 'Shashin Bunka' in 1940 as part of the wartime consolidation of magazines. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
