Hand-shadows (free) ebook

(via MAKE ezine blog)

Perfect for those of you with children of your own.  Here is a Project Gutenberg provided e-book (that means you can legally download it for free in the US and possibly elsewhere) to guide you on making shadow critters.  Originally published in 1859, the book was released for free by the Gutenberg project in 2004.  Along with a brief bit of text, the book is mostly a series of images showing the hand positioning and resulting shadow for a number of different critters/shadows.
Just an aside on the project – I notice that the uncompressed HTML file is 24K, but the zip compressed HTML file is 633K.
