Dear SW List Members!
Summer, in the Northern Hemisphere, is over, and school is starting again in the North. I know it is Winter in Brazil...so I guess you are already in school ;-)
And as teachers, students and researchers are coming home from vacation, my email box is filling with questions about SignWriting. Isn't that wonderful? That is the way it should be ;-)
For the past three years, Adam Frost has been photographing his own hands to create animated GIFs of the 6 palm facings of each handshape in the ISWA 2010.
But the hand photos are not just for animation. We are also using them in our new textbook:
SignWriting Hand Symbols 2010
by Valerie Sutton and Adam Frost
Although the book is not finished, I just posted the first 92 pages of the book online for you to download. There will be over 300 pages when the book is finished. I will create web pages for it in the future. At the moment, the only link I have is this one, and the download is 25 mb:
