Rhetorical Gestures Mug

I don’t yet have one. The iconic image of rhetoric as the open hand and closed fist is, I’m fairly certain, from Wilbur Samuel Howell’s Logic and Rhetoric in England, 1500-1700 (reprinted by Princeton UP, 1956). I’ll try to remember to double check that source and update it here.
