Roll Dem Bones

Andrea Falaschi returns to our pages with this set of Futhark runes scribed on real bone.  They look like something dug up at an archeological site, and I mean that as high praise.

I have played with the idea of using real (human) bone for some of my projects. While I personally don't care what happens to my body after I die, although it would be nice if some other animals get a meal, I understand some people may not feel the same way. Plus, my other half won't let me have certain things (fancy handmade Ouija board, real human skull, etc.) and I figure items made of human bones would fall into the same category. I guess I am lucky I get to have the weird things that are allowed.

Sad to say that for those Futhark runes they included one that isnt a real rune, the blank one, historically a blank rune was never used, its a modern addition added to commercially available runestone sets. Other then that small little error, the set looks good, might need to try this with some deer bones, already have a set of actual stone runes that I carved.
