Hand Shadows and More Hand Shadows


Creating hand shadows on a wall is a pastime that has entertained young and old alike for generations. Now the art of hand shadows is made easy in this volume, a combination of two wonderful Victorian novelty books.

By following the clear visual instructions (a full-page illustration of each subject shows both the shadow and the hand position that forms it), shadow shapers will be able to make a bird take flight, a duck quack, Toby the dog wag his tail, and more. With a little patience and practice, anyone can learn to make these and 30 additional figures, including a deer, camel, bunny, bull’s head, Shakespeare, grandpa, an elephant, and more. Soon you’ll be able to invent your own designs.
