About the Author 
Eve Arnold is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a member of Magnum since 1955. In 1995 she was elected Master Photographer, the world's most prestigious photographic honor, by New York's International Center of Photography. The author of a number of books, including Film Journal (Bloomsbury, 2002), she lives in London. 
Book Description 
A gorgeous collection from one of the world's legendary photographers- capturing human hands in all their vitality.  
At the end of a session, photographer Eve Arnold always took a parting shot of the hands -and sometimes the feet- of her sitters, for luck and for her personal records. Handbook with Footnotes brings together two hundred of these superb pictures.  
A photojournalist who traveled around the world, Eve Arnold also worked on the sets of more than 40 Hollywood movies. These photographs, therefore, which span her career, include such luminaries as Isabella Rossellini, Orson Welles, Marilyn Monroe, and Jimmy Stewart, captured in unguarded moments and with an unexpected focus away from their famous faces. And yet the celebrity portraits are just some of the highlights in a far-ranging and deeply moving portrait of humanity. Here are old hands, young hands, hands gripping guns and holding flowers, performing surgery and playing cards, painting, saluting, and blessing.  
With this beautifully produced book, Eve Arnold establishes herself once again as a major photographer of our time.
