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.

    See item 63 in the catalogue. The official organ of the Japan Photographic Society, this monthly magazine was founded by Minami Minoru in April 1926 and it ran until November 1940, making the present vol. xxix, 1-5 the last issues published before the consolidation of photographic magazines. It was strongly influenced by Fukuhara Shinzo and from August 1929 carried the subtitle 'the light and its harmony' in direct reference to his ideas. (Titus Boeder)
