These are really beautiful pen and ink (black and white) drawings based on the 30 glyph anglo-saxon rune row. The cards are quite a large format and are a little awkward if you have small hands like me, but dont let that put you off. Each card is an interpretation of a rune - based carefully on the ideas in the anglo-saxon rune poem, some convey more than one image or idea, as is common with other divination cards. Great if you are working with the anglo-saxon set and or the rune poem itself. They also make great meditation cards, just sit and contemplate the images. Some are quite profound. Comes with a little booklet or purchase the more detailed book - Anglo-saxon mythology, migration & magic, for the big illustrations of the cards.
