Famous hand posters

hero_hand2.jpg

There's a lot to be said about a person from a swift examination of their hands. You can usually work out whether they have a manual job and if you're well-versed, you can also make some sort of sweeping statement about their romantic future.

But nine times out of ten, the hands we encounter are fairly dull and repetitive. If only we had more iconic friends (no offence, like).

The rather talented Rocco Malatesta has created a set of posters which pay tribute to some of the most famous hands ever to be shook, pointed and, ermmm, crucified.

High five!
