Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0914336495, Spiral-bound)

SignWriting is a way to read and write the handshapes, arm movements, facial expressions and body gestures of any sign language in the world. Sign languages are becoming written languages because of SignWriting. Although reading and writing sign languages may be a new idea for many signers, writing sign languages is actually starting to spread in sign language communities around the world. SignWriting Literature, written in the movements of sign languages, preserves the beauty and culture of Deaf people, and aids in teaching sign languages for both Deaf and hearing people. This SignWriting Basics Instruction Manual is a slender 42-page, paperback, spiral bound book used to learn the basic symbols of SignWriting quickly and visually. It is an excellent introduction to the International SignWriting Alphabet. The examples in the book are written in American Sign Language, with illustrations and short sentences in English. Basic handshapes, contact symbols, finger movements, arm movements and facial expressions are explained with diagrams and examples of signs that use each symbol.
