Its a wonderful book which envisages as how to create the hand from all angles. Infact I would say that the entire credit would go to Burne hugorth who took so much of creative efforts to teach us about how to draw a hand. It is a book which makes one to understand the bones and muscle fibres that is there in our hand. My strong recomendation is to insist each and every artist to own this book which will serve as a bible for their work.
