The most lavishly-illustrated photographic sign-language book ever published (approximately 1,300 photographs). An ideal supplementary text for intermediate sign-language classes—but can be used and enjoyed by beginning and advanced students as well. Contains complete frame-by-frame visualizations of two anecdotes, Bragg’s “Crackers” and Olson’s “Experiences of a Hearing Educator,” a “Dialogue,” and Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening.” Photos of 43 indispensable handshapes/classifiers are also featured. Practice texts include Olson’s “The Day I Almost Got Fired for Signing” and Bragg's hilarious “Beefeater Catastrophe.” With introduction, explanation, notes, glosses, and bibliography.
