Comes in a hinged book/box thingy, with an insert for the card deck on one side and the book on the other. For some reason, the book is attached to the box… The different types of cards have different colors, blue (the runes), green and yellow. The cardstock is rather flimsy, and I’m not sure how long it will last with a lot of use, but as a tool for learning the rune meanings, it’s a good deck πŸ™‚

Guidebook: 96 pages. It starts with history and origin of the runes, then you get sample readings of the spreads (same spreads that are on the four cards. Each rune gets a full page color photo (or rather, a collage of pictures of what the rune means, animals, birds, plants, etc), and a page of text. There’s the rune, its name and literal meaning, divinatory meanings (including reversed), and a list of associated deities, colors, animals, plants, etc.

I actually can not find this deck on Amazon. I know it has existed, probably as an earlier publication, because I’ve seen it around on YouTube. It may have been one of those cheaper kits that you find on the counter in certain bookstores (like the Tarot Nova – it took me a long time to figure out what that deck was actually called so I could buy a second copy of it online). However, the book doesn’t give me a year of publication, at all, not even the new one. My search on Amazon only gives me one that sells for a ridiculous amount of money… I got my deck from Bookdepository, which is where I do most of my shopping, and there it looks like it was just recently published. I don’t know what’s right.
