Hand Shadows Second Series by Henry Bursill

Have you ever tried to adjust your hands and fingers for a portrait of Shakespeare, a sheep, or a wild Indian? The author of this delightful book of hand shadows spent long hours working out the figures in this book. By following his clear visual instructions (each of the 16 figures in this book is explained by a full-page illustration that shows you the precise positioning for fingers and hands) you can create Shakespeare, a sheep, Wellington, a hare, Mike, Mike's pig, a cockatoo, a bull's head, a squirrel, Mrs. Gamp, Mr. Punch, and other people and animals. After you have mastered these, you will have the skill and be challenged to develop some of your own.
