Talk with your hands

My uncle Herman’s new book, ‘Het Groot Gebarenboek der Lage Landen’ is out. Here’s the cover and details of this illustrated encyclopedia of gestures. Illustrations by Pat Andrea, texts by H.P. de Boer.
In Dutch only, I’m afraid.

My uncle is always looking for new gestures. I ‘did’ one for him the last time I saw him at my dad’s birthday and he took a picture of this ‘gesture of disgust’. I haven’t seen it yet, but Pat Andrea drew the image from the photograph and apparently it is featured in the book.
