Hand Shadows by Henry Bursill

Customer rank: +1

At some time or other most of us have amused ourselves by casting shadows on the wall with our hands. Hand shadows are an ever-popular diversion, especially with the young. The number and variety of objects that it is possible for you to form, simply by moving your hands and fingers around in different positions, is practically limitless, subject only to your patience and ingenuity.

But figuring out the exact finger positioning is not a simple matter; some shapes are quite difficult to obtain. The author of this delightful picture book of hand shadows spent long hours working out the figures in this book. By following his clear visual instruction (each of the 18 figures in the book is explained by a full-page illustration that shows you the precise positioning for fingers and hands), you can create a boy, camel, goose, deer, grandpa, bunny, bird in flight, ... After you have mastered these, it will be a simple matter to invent shadows of your own.

Parents can use this book to amuse their youngsters, or to teach them to recognize the various animals and other objects pictured here. A distinctly Victorian flavor adds considerable period charm to this collection of original designs.

1st edition, 1859, Griffith and Farran; reprint, 1967, Dover Publications, New York; 18 pages.
