Absolutely Excellent Intro to Ogam!,
This review is from: Ogam: The Celtic Oracle of the Trees: Understanding, Casting, and Interpreting the Ancient Druidic Alphabet (Paperback)
I went into this book knowing very little about the Ogam alphabet- just some simple associations with each letter from other books I've read that mentioned it in passing. But the Pgam is explored thoroughly and in-depth in this book- it definitely inspired me to start making my own set and using it as a divination tool! The books begins with a section explaining some of the history and mythology of the Ogam alphabet, citing a variety of sources for the best coverage. The author then goes on to describe each few, which is the best part! The fews are described in terms of word ogams, mythology, botany of the associated tree, and more. The last section directs you into a practical use of the wealth of knowledge the author provided. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone interested in the Ogam, beginner or experienced! Great read!
