Which Country?

fingeralphabet W1

I have about 500 gestures catalogued. More, if I add the numbers. The sign above is my “W1”. It was the first “W” that I did for my new catalogue system.

Anybody knows for which country?

Hint: it was not for the first sign language alphabet that I published.
(If you do not know, you might want to look around here)

And, by the way, this is another of our coolKIDS – straight out of a fairy-tale.



Fingeralphabet coolKIDS

The coolKIDS illustrations are part of a project for children who are confronted with the sign language alphabet at a later point in their life.

There is a lot of material out there for very young children, and then there is the more neutral material for adults. So far I have seen little of interest between these two aspects, especially not for young people in the age where hero figures become more important and self valor and self-esteem are questioned for the first time.

I hope that the coolKIDS manage to fill this gap in a meaningful way, by providing material that celebrates the hand signs as something cool to know for kids of all backgrounds. A knowledge, that is supposed to make you more rather than less interesting.

Two digital books are being prepared right now by LegendaryMedia and myself and will be released before the bookfair in Frankfurt in October 2013: a German and an American version of the Fingeralphabet coolKIDS.

It is a test.

If the material is accepted in digital form, then there might be more of the kind. I hope it will.

    Thanks for all the emails … I really appreciate it.
    Please consider writing your comments here, so that others can enjoy them, too.

    It seems that a lot of people are passing it on to their kids. That is great!
    I’d love to hear the feedback.

    Best to all of you!

    Reingelegt. 🙂
    Hat nix mit dem Kleidchen zu tun.

    Es ist fairerweise auch aus einem Fingeralphabet, dass man hier bereits downloaden kann.
