The Nordic Animist Year | Book by Rune Hjarnø Rasmussen


For the last three years, we have sold copies of the amazing Nordic Animism Calendar through the Northern Fire shop which has featured work from some of our artists.

But now, alongside the beautiful artwork of the calendar, Rune has created a book to explain a bit more about the holidays and the history of the months themselves. For anybody, who is interested in Nordic religious history or who has a deep love for Viking inspired arts and mythology, this is a must have. 

This is a truly unique piece of work, which we cannot recommend highly enough.


Material & Make

Printed in a paperback, the book you receive will be packaged in a protective cardboard book mailer.
