Ragnarök –The downfall of the Norse gods

Eric Leraillez

Helga Hilmisdóttir

 

The story of Ragnarök is based on Iceland´s most important contribution to Western literature: Völuspá (The Prophesy of The Sorceress) from the Poetic Edda. The poem is over 1000 years old but is preserved.

 

The story of Ragnarök is accompanied with commentaries and explanations. The mesmerising illustrations breathe life into the story; rich with authentic symbols, they remind one of an enigmatic grimoire, and draw the reader’s eyes to them over and over again.
