Item Description...
Making and Manipulating Marionettes is a superb guide to a craft and performance art that has fascinated audiences for over 2,000 years. Handsomely illustrated throughout, it presents precise instructions for the making of marionettes, both for plays and for acts in the variety tradition. All aspects of marionette design, construction, and control are covered, and there are rare insights into specialized designs and stringing techniques. Contents include an introduction to the marionette tradition and the principles and practicalities of marionette design; advice on materials and methods for carving, modeling, and casting puppet parts; detailed explanations for marionette control, stringing, and manipulation; step-by-step instructions for the construction and jointing of human and animal marionettes; and professional secrets for achieving a wide range of special effects.

My Favorite Kind of How To Book  Jun 2, 2008
Precise, organized, illustrated. One of my goals was to find out more about materials and here, because the author is British, I didn't receive the satisfaction I sought. Names of materials in the U.K. are likely different than in the U.S. (if found here at all) so I'd like to know what the U.S. versions are especially if i can just saunter down to the local Home Despot and pick it up cheap vs. ordering via the web.
Good reference on the subject  Feb 26, 2006
Very interesting book on creating and using marionettes. It touches on making a variety of different types, including making 4-legged animal marionettes, and using an assortment of materials. Well worth having on hand.
Gorgeous state-of-the-art book  Apr 6, 2005
This is a gorgeously printed state-of-the-art book on marionette making. I have so many books from the past on this, but it is so delightful to see something current, and this is it. This is bound to become a collectible book. Be sure and get this one before it is out of print - I doubt many were made. Great stuff on trick marionettes, as well.
