The Hand Book by Vitezslav Mecner and Magda Gargulakova
Hands are so much a part of our bodies that we barely notice their presence. We use them to carry a mug of tea to our mouth, stroke a beloved pet, or bang on the table. Composed of a write, a palm, and five clever fingers, the hand is a reliable partner we would struggle to be without.
Have you ever wondered how hands work? Or why some of us are left-handed and others right-handed? Or how the hands of a sculptor differs from those of a pianist or a bricklayer? Did you know that we can use our hands to talk with, by communicating thoughts where spoken words can’t reach? We may think of hands as ordinary, but they are truly remarkable . . . After reading this book, you will see your hands in a whole new way.
