Originally published as a twenty session correspondence course by a founder of the Puppeteers of America, this well-written step-by-step guide is timeless and covers the entire process of conceiving, writing, designing, construction, rehearsing, and promoting a marionette or hand puppet production. The entire original text and illustrations are augmented with later revisions as well as some of the Lesson 20's which were written to address each student's questions. Includes a reprint of a 1947 Popular Mechanics booklet. More than 180 line illustrations.
"It is a happy day this material is once again visible and available to nudge young puppeteers to find their own way of seeing and doing shows."
