The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage Into Faerie

We have reprinted our original The Book of Elven Runes and now have it available on Amazon (see below) and The Book Depository. This is not the Norse Runes but our own original elven rune divination system. It consists of 40 runes. The book is 130 pages with photos and illustrations that feature each rune and explain the rune system, how to make your own set of runes (runestones not included), and the interpretation for each of the runes.

The Book of Elven Runes: A Passage into Faerie

"Some elves cast their runes upon the nacrescent trails left by snails on the ground. Prognosticating according to the nature of the rune and its nearness or farness from the shiny trails that they often refer to as the Paths of Destiny."
The Silver Elves


Thank you so very much Delfynasa for your comments on Amazon about our book:

“One of my favorite divination books. It is beautifully written and illustrated. I have taken my copy everywhere! So it is 'broken in' looking. If you like runes but want something a little different this is great book. If you are really into Elves or are an Elf you will LOVE this book!!!


Thank you dear Gail Avrill for your review on Goodreads and Amazon:

“I love the Silver Elves' books. "The Book of Elven Runes" is an original and unique system of divination with 40 elven runes (I was surprised to find that it is not based on either the Norse Runes or on Tolkien's runes). This book is subtitled a "Passage into Faerie" and I think for good reason as by following the oracle it helps in getting closer to understanding that wondrous realm.”


We received two letters from our sister, Sorynvala, after she purchased the original edition of The Elven Book of Runes (2001). Sorynvala has kindly given us permission to share some of her comments about The Elven Book of Runes.

Dear Silver Elves,

I have received and read through the book and all I can say is Wow!
What a wonderful and magickal gift you have crafted for Elvenkind.
Thank you. The Runes are already fast becoming part of my daily
experience in many different ways…

Later, she wrote,

Your book is truly a Gift to any who would have it and I heartily recommend
it to anyone. I did of course admire the professional quality of the book and the obvious technical skills you employed in putting it together. On that level it is very nice indeed! But I have to admit, it is the obvious Love and Dedication and Elven Magick that you put into it - which fairly drips off the pages! - that *really* makes it special in my mind.

wishes to you of health and happiness
thanks and much love

And thank you, dear Dakyndre Helgesson, for your review on Amazon:

I agree that this book is an original and fresh oracle system. I purchased this book and am half way through it and it is wonderful. The runes are simple in their form yet complex and powerful in their meaning and use. As an oracle they are amazing and for their use in ritual even more profound. As with all the books of these authors I highly recommend this book to those seeking the realm of the fae.

Sample of one of our Runes (from page 67-68):

elf rune 18: Hollow
Rune 18: Hollow

A sacred place both warm and safe
Protected among the elfin race.

Magical Implement: temple, grove or bower

The Magical Act:
Go to a magical place, step across into Faerie, camp and spend the night. The Hollow is a secure place, an eald of it’s own, a little world in which one can be safe, at least for a time. It is a place of gathering and denotes also an opening or a passage way. The hollow is usually a quieter world, isolated and buffered from the more active regions around it. It is a sanctuary and thus a place where the spirit can easily manifest. It is the grotto, the quiet place within our inner being that offers residence for the Divine, the space in which Nature’s voice can be ‘felt’. It is the hidden valley— the home of Shangrala. Here the elf folk may come without fear of the madness and callousness of the world of men. It is the cradle in which the babe rocks, secure in it’s Mother’s love.

Since it is also an opening, it signifies the place where the lucky may stumble accidently, wandering unintentionally across the boundaries of the world into the twilight realms of the netherworld. One may touch the realms of magic and thus receive inspiration, which one may take back with them into the hustle and bustle of the world.

Those who receive this rune should take time to contemplate, to retreat for the time being to receive inspiration. Perhaps Nature whispers and we must grow silent within ours’elves and without ours’elves to hear Her voice. Bring yourself to a safe, secure place, retreating for the time being, opening yourself, trusting in a space of security, just as the babe depends and trusts in the love and care of it’s Mother. So, too, you must put yourself like a babe in the hands of Mother Nature. She will come to you, as soothing, as healing as inspiration. Be one with Her and the others who may have gathered with’ you. For the hollow is open to all who come, yet it is hidden from many. In the hollow all are safe together and share in quietude the unity of their life within Nature. And by trusting they find their way. That place lives within them, a place they may always retreat to, finding all their loved ones there within their own heart ... and thus secure may go forth renewed and strengthened on their path through the world. And as they go they may come upon their kindred here and there and growing close, sometimes for just a moment, may touch that hollow place within them, awakening it.
