I attended a workshop by Harmonia Saille, an English author and Hedgewitch in Amsterdam. The subject was "Connecting with the runes", based on her upcoming book The Spiritual Runes. It's not the umpteenth book listing the runes and their meaning, but a guide to help you make a spiritual connection with the runes. It includes rune philosophy, mythology, divination and magic. I'm familiar with the runes and their general meanings, always attracted to them but never explored any further. This workshop provided just what I needed.

An extremely detailed book, packed with information covering every aspect of the runes from the author's own personal experiences of learning and working with them.
Loads of background and history, along with the mythology behind them. Then the practical elements of how to connect with them including detailed exercises followed by all the meanings and the psychology and cosmology that links with them.
This book also includes instructions for making your own set, how to inscribe, purify and empower them.
Lots of suggestions for casting and reading them along with ideas for working rune magic.
I can't imagine any other book on runes would cover so much about them.
