The Sorcerer’s Screed is an Icelandic magic book. It’s the world‘s most comprehensive collection of Nordic spells, originally published in 1940. The author, Skuggi, was deeply into traditional Icelandic magic history and based the screed on dozens of Icelandic manuscripts, both preserved and lost. The 2015 edition is a digitized version of the same screed.

The spells in this book have been adherent to Scandinavian history and culture for centuries and Icelanders have been using magic spells from the first settlement for everyday purposes as well as the more unorthodox.
