Myths of the Norsemen: Retold from the Old Norse Poems and Tales by Roger Lancelyn Green (1918–1987) was first published in 1960. This is the cover of Puffin’s paperback edition from 1976, with illustrations by Brian Wildsmith. The typeface chosen for the title is Libra: this modern uncial designed by S.H. de Roos in the 1930s strikes a good balance between the forms of Insular script as it was used in the British Isles during the Viking Age (see e.g. the Book of Durrow and the Book of Kells), and what’s easily legible to young readers today.
