American Sign Language: "page"

This "page" sign can be used to mean "look something up" or a "page" in a book.

Hold your non-dominant flat hand (palm facing up) in front of you as if representing a book.
Form your dominant hand into an "A"-handshape with a prominent thumb.  Using a double movement (gently) strike backward across your palm with your thumb-tip as if turning pages with your thumb.



You can put a "D" hand on the sign for "PAGE" and it changes the meaning into "dictionary."





If you put an "E" on the dominant hand this sign can be used to mean "encyclopedia."
