Irritated by all the different ASL alphabet charts you are finding online?

Worried about accidentally learning the wrong signs?

The American Sign Language Alphabet: Letters A-Z, Numbers 0-9 reference guide will help you learn the basics of ASL fingerspelling without a headache and in no time. All the hand signs were approved by renowned American sign language experts. This book is part of a set of professional reference guides for international manual alphabets for It is designed for libraries, institutions, and individuals who need or prefer the information in ebook format.

Unsure about some of the handshapes?

Some signs are hard to grasp (and hard to illustrate). These are two of the reasons why handshapes are often shown from varying perspectives rather than a continuous one. Unfortunately, changes of perspective within an alphabet chart are rarely pointed out, leading to confusion and misunderstandings. The signs in this reference guide are shown in large illustrations from two defined view points in order to facilitate understanding. Each handshape is demonstrated in two images – one, as seen by the viewer and one, as seen by the signer – which makes each sign easy to learn. In addition, the alphabet as well as the numbers 0-9 are grouped together separately in comprehensive charts.
