from 9.95

By George R. Bridgeman

The Book of a Hundred Hands is exactly what it sounds like. With this delightful little book George Bridgman has handed the world's artists a remarkable resource. As he points out, the human hand has a tremendous capacity for expression, and the attentive artist takes advantage of this potential to imbue their work with detail and meaning. After all, we can tell a lot about a person from their hands: everything from a subject's age and gender, to their psychological and emotional states, and even occupation.

With 100 carefully-selected illustrations that clearly identify the regions of the hand in a variety of positions, The Book of a Hundred Hands is the perfect workbook and reference for any artist, beginning or experienced. Whether you read it as a textbook or pull it from your shelf for inspiration when you're stumped on a particular hand-rendering problem, this book is a worthy addition to any artist's library. The lessons it contains are sure to elevate your human figures to new levels of expression and detail.
