Item description for Handbook by Jean-Benoît Lévy...
Used as pictograms and icons, modern hand images function as a universal visual means ofcommunication.Jean-Bnot Levy is obsessed with hands. Not only has he collected, over the years, hundreds of examples backing up his notion of a worldwide system of hand-signs, as a designer and typographer he has also created his own hand alphabet called 'H-and-S'.
The panoply of hands presented in this publication includes charming curiosities and lay-persons' creations as well as concepts by professional communicators -- confirming that hand signs constitute a global, inter-cultural metalanguage. As a handbook -- or 'manual' -- this publication advances our vision and invites us to observe our own surroundings with a new curiosity and sense of awareness.
