Die hand = The hand

Scheuermann, Arne, contributor; Richter, Bettina, editor; Museum für Gestaltung Zürich. Plakatsammlung, associated with work

The history of posters is rich in variations on the hand. In consumer posters,a hand presents desirable products. But the hand can also take the form of asymbolically charged gesture in the political poster. In cultural posters, the handthen becomes the emblem of the creative individual. Just as versatile as therhetoric of the hand are its diverse uses as a design element. In this volume,photographic, illustrative and abstract graphic images add up to a small culturalhistory of the hand as an eloquent conveyor of messages
