Limited Edition Book
Here’s something fun for the die-hard book collector who really enjoyed the Hooked X. Scott F. Wolter has teamed up with JRR Bookworks to create hand-bound (limited to 100) leather editions of the Hooked X: Key to the Secret History of North America.
Joe Rose of JRR Bookworks (www.jrrbookworks@com) bound the books in veg tanned goat skins that have amazing grain and texture. Scott and Janet Wolter chose symbols from the book. Each symbol was transferred onto a brass plate and acid etched then retooled by hand. Although the acid etching process does not always cut the metal in perfect ways, the stamps created often have an artisan, or Old World feel that has become part of Joe’s signature style.
After weeks of etching and mounting the stamps, Joe bound the 14 pages of color photographs to the 1st edition books. He then added agate pattern marbled paper, head and foot bands, and created a solid spine with raised bands. Each book is meticulously trimmed at all fold-ins, worked over with the bone folder and heavy thread, band nips, and other tools to ensure a perfect specimen for finishing.
Limitation plates were made and tipped in and then signed and numbered. One thin strip of glue attached each acid free plate to the page so as to avoid any shrinking once the glue dries and thus rippling of the paper.

Hooked X Print
The Hooked X [28” x 18” print] created by artist Dan Wiemer in 2010 depicts the secret history of the Hooked X symbol.
The discovery of the meaning of the Hooked X was stunning, as was the secret history behind it that gradually unfolded during the quest to learn more about that history through research. This journey has been nothing short of amazing as it winds through the mysterious worlds of the medieval Cistercians, the Knights Templar, and modern Freemasonry. The print comes with a key with explanations to symbolism of the various parts to the painting.
KRS Discovery Print
KRS Discovery [20” x 15” print] created by artist Dan Wiemer in 2005 illustrates the discovery of the Kensington Rune Stone in 1898.
When Olof Ohman, a Swedish immigrant working his fields in what is now Douglas County, MN, found the 202-lb., mysteriously engraved stone tangled in the roots of an uprooted tree, controversy has raged over the artifact’s authenticity. The stone, dated 1362, soon proved how difficult the search for the truth can be—and raised eyebrows over the possibility that North European explorers predated Columbus in America.
The Hooked X Book
The Hooked X picks up where that story leaves off taking the reader on a journey from Minnesota to the New England Coast, where four more medieval rune stones are found. The trail then leads to a mysterious round stone tower in Rhode Island that could only have been constructed by a highly controversial group from Europe before the time of Christopher Columbus. The story that unfolds behind the Hooked X shatters many historical and religious paradigms and ultimately reveals the startling untold history of North America.
