Description

Making hand shadows on the wall is an age-old pastime that has provided countless hours of entertainment for children
and adults alike. In this entertaining how-to book, a master of the art goes far beyond the basics to reveal his secrets
for creating realistic, lifelike hand shadows.
With practice and patience, you too can soon learn how to arrange your hands and fingers to form shadow images of a
lumbering dinosaur, a pair of playful monkeys, an eagle slowly taking flight, a cat scratching itself, a howling wolf,
and a neighing horse. You'll also discover how to create profiles of Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Fidel Castro, and
other notables; and how to make recognizable silhouettes of churches, a pagoda, the Eiffel Tower, and more.
Clear explanations and over 70 illustrations show precisely how to hold your hands in order to make the shadows seem
lifelike. You'll also find expert advice on finger exercises to make it easier to produce hand shadows, and even how to
organize a performance of your own shadow art. Ideal for children, this book will also appeal to adults, especially to
magicians and other stage performers.
