Covers elder and Viking runes, and leads us to the contemporary runic revival Book written by Edred Thorsson has references to sources from books by Stephen Flowers. First, the criticism regarding his Left-Hand-Path views I think are not entirely on the mark.

Flowers, Runes and Magic: I love reading about the runes by historians, such as how they were used, what they said and the artwork that sometimes accompanied them lorw chiseled on stone.
