American Sign Language Matchbooks

Thanks to Eleanor Jane Cardwell for introducing the art of JK Keller, such as the American Sign Language Matchbooks, above, which show the artist's interpretation of the fingerspelling alphabet. If you are interested in such things, go to the American Sign Language Browser, created at the Michigan State University College of Communication Arts and Sciences (where I got my M.A. degreee in journalism, by the way). It is a fascinating tool - you choose a word and it shows you how to sign it. In fact, go check out the sign for "government." You will be amazed and amused. I guarantee it.
