Highlights the author's inquiries into the finger's representation in art that take us from Buddhist statues in Kyoto to the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, from cave art to Picasso's "Guernica", from Van Dyck's and Rubens' winning ways with gloves to the longstanding French taste for tapering digits.
