besides "Wood Type Ornaments 2" and Zapf Dingbats do you know of a set that has the pointing hand?
Adobe Caslon Ornaments has it... and, um... Wingdings?
LettError Salmiak has some nice hand-drawn pointing hands in the Catchwords font that is part of the package. DF Calligraphic Ornaments have some fancy pen-drawn hands too (See character map).
IIRC, Scala has a dingbat font with fists. [It's the Scala 2 set actually. $40 for just the hands.] [Erp. As Tiffany says below, it's Sacala Sans]

Zapfino has some lovely fists, some with elegant pearl bracelets. There's also a duck.
Fountain's Zanzibar also has a pair of calligraphic hands similar in style to the ones found in Zapfino. No duck, but there is a pineapple.
i love that pineapple, i may use it on my little sister's wedding announcements. ;^)
y'no I had a spread sheet of Zanzibar out of Applied Arts mag taped up to the fridge during christmas - our pseudo santa list (the fridge door) Zanzibar didn't make it - the people in the house just don't understand and thought I'd get more of a kick from the new socks ( I did have lots of socks on the list) anyway - thanks alot for the list eh. Its a suggestion I wanted to put into myfonts.com...dingbats and all - I search for specific ones way too often without noting. you guys hit it.
FF Scala Sans has some good pointing fingers. Even some using different fingers.
