The Storybook Puppet Theatre is the oldest continuously operating puppet theater in the United States. Up to seven new productions are created each year by the theater's director. This book shows step-by-step how to make fabric puppets in the "Fairyland way." Three types of felt heads are illustrated plus making a hand puppet, a rod puppet, and a marionette - all from fabric. Patterns for the three styles of heads plus the three types of puppets are included.
"If any puppet-making blueprint has acquired what could be called a pedigree,
it's the pattern developed at Fairyland."
