3.0 out of 5 stars The cards are pretty. 24 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I have this. The cards are pretty and fun to use, but the book that explains their meanings is a little...vague. Somehow all of the meanings seem alike to me. Other definitions that I've read are a bit more specific and a little more paganish. The book does give directions though and that's nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Artwork 23 Oct 2008
By Ursula K. Raphael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The way the Elder Futhark (runes) are incorporated into such beautiful scenarios is reason enough to buy this deck. The book is also very useful, and avoids repeating the Book of Runes that came with a clay set.

A card deck of runes is also a lot easier to travel with; whenver I went through airports with my other rune sets, I was always afraid someone would damage my stones.

Regardless of whether you are a beginner or an expert, anyone who loves runes would love this deck.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best rune cards out there 9 Jun 2013
By Michelle Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have owned a set of these cards since I was 17 and I'm now 42. This set I bought for my daughter who just turned 17 as it has become a family tradition that each of my children gets a set when they reach this age.

This set of the most complete comprehensive set out there. The cards are absolutely beautiful and the book gives you an excellent back ground on the runes and how they can help you through day to day life.

If you are interested in rune cards this is the only set I would ever recommend to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Ecelectic Pagans 11 July 2005
By D. W. Carper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you are a searcher and need counsel, this book by Ralph Blum is for you. The beautiful cards and verses offer insight and wisdom. Ralph Blum connects the Runes with other traditions to form a whole for Christians and Ecelectic Pagans. For example, he has the Medicine Wheel Spread to connect with your mental, spiritual, physical, emotional selves on different levels.

However,if you are looking for an indepth study of the Runes and the Norse Gods, this book is not for you. Ralph Blum has his own version of the Elder Futhark. He also divorces the culture surrounding the Runes from the Runes themselves.
