the armanen runes.

Stephen Flowers (aka Edred Thorsson) has written numerous books on the topic of runelore.  The Secret of the Runes and Rune Might are excellent references regarding the Armanic Futhorkh of Guido von List.  The latter goes into much detail regarding the ritual use of the runes, including mudra (hand gestures) and asanas (postures) for each of the following runes.  Download a TrueTypeFont of the Armanen Runes.
