Author(s): Jean-Benoit Levy


Used as pictograms and icons, modern hand images function as a universal visual means of communication. Jean-BA(c)noA(R)t 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 a ~H-and-Sa (TM).

The panoply of hands presented in this publication includes charming curiosities and lay-personsa (TM) creations as well as concepts by professional communicators a" confirming that hand signs constitute a global, inter-cultural metalanguage. As a handbook a" or a ~manuala (TM) a" this publication advances our vision and invites us to observe our own surroundings with a new curiosity and sense of awareness.
