Please try the book The Mirror of Gesture by Ananda K. Coomaraswamy. The book is an English translation of the traditional book Abhinaya Darpana of Nandikesvara . The book is on Mudras gestures . You could also try Natyasastra by Bharathamuni the English translation is available. It has a section on mudras the rest of the book is on traditional Indian performance i.e. dance music and drama
