Today we were quite amused by this astrologer and palmist Gabriel Dee back in 1931. Gabriel explains the nation’s tragic fate according to their palms with absolutely no hint of humour or light heartedness. She comes out with some quite remarkable phrases like “If it reaches out across the palm then you will travel and die abroad”, or our personal favourite – “you’re absolutely incapable of sincere love”.
The diagram soon fills up with Gabriel’s linear annotations, telling us everything from our creative capacity to the extent of a jealous streak. She finishes on the rather dubious warning – “And remember! Your left hand is what you are born with, your right hand is what you make of it”
Full marks go to the creepy Wicker Man esque music at the beginning too. Watch Gabriel Dee’s lesson in palm reading here.
