Description
From the author of A Brief History of the Smile comes this complete index of the digit. Art historian Angus Trumble examines the finger from every possible angle in this mix of art and science, history and pop culture, considering its appearance in everything from Buddhist statues in Kyoto to the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, from cave art to Picasso's Guernica, from van Dyck's and Rubens' gloves to the longstanding French taste for tapering digits. But Trumble also asks intriguing questions about the finger in general: How do fingers work? Why do most of us have five on each hand? And why do we bite our nails?
