Paul McPharlin began publishing the Puppetry Yearbook in 1930 and it was instrumental in the formation of the Puppeteers of America, who eventually assumed responsibility for its publication. Each thin issue was packed with news of puppeteers, technical developments, opinions, and international news. This disk includes all the text, photos, and graphics in the original fifteen books.
"Don't make the mistake of assuming these are dry, dusty historical artifacts, useful only for research papers.
The puppeteers who appear in and wrote for the Yearbooks were lively, eccentric, inventive, and sometimes opinionated personalities; the kind of puppeteers you'd enjoy hanging out with and learning from if they were alive today."
