The Dalecarlian runes, or dalrunes, was a late version of the runic script that was in use in the Swedish province of Dalarna until the 20th century. The province has consequently been called the “last stronghold of the Germanic script”.
When Carl Linnaeus visited Älvdalen in Dalarna in 1734, he made the following note in his diary: “The peasants in the community here, apart from using rune staves, still today write their names and ownership marks with runic letters, as is seen on walls, corner stones, bowls, etc. Which one does not know to be still continued anywhere else in Sweden.”
Apart from launching my clothing line on Etsy, to promote my digital art printed on canvas and garments, I was also invited by Amazon, together with a small group of authors to beta test their new option of publishing books with a hardcover.
So a big “Thank you” to Amazon for their gracious invite which I couldn’t refuse.
I present to you for the first time on Amazon the Hardcover version of my latest poetry book – ‘READ MY POETRY‘. Find links below…. Needless to say that I am currently also working on the paperback and Kindle version of the book and it should be released in the next few days.
*Cuneiform is a logo-syllabic script that was used to write several languages of the Ancient Near East. The script was in active use from the early Bronze Age until the beginning of the Common Era. It is named for the characteristic wedge-shaped impressions (Latin: cuneus) which form its signs. Cuneiform originally developed to write the Sumerian language of southern Mesopotamia (modern Iraq). Along with Egyptian hieroglyphs, it is one of the earliest writing systems.
‘Learn to Write Cuneiform ‘ is next in the line up of my LTW (Learn To Write) Series. Keep a look out for it….
