"Puppets and Puppet Theatre" contains everything one needs to know to progress from a beginner's level to a high standard of artistry.
Puppeteer David Currell concentrates on designing, making, and performing with the main types of puppets, offering detailed information on the nature and heritage of puppet theater; the anatomy of a puppet and its design and structure; materials and methods for sculpting, modeling, and casting puppet parts; step-by-step instructions for constructing marionettes as well as glove, hand, rod, and shadow puppets; and the control and manipulation of all these types of puppets.
The author then covers staging principles and construction methods; principles of lighting and sound; and the basics of producing a show.
Lavishly illustrated and filled with expert tips and insights, this is a must-have book for anyone drawn to the magical world of puppets and puppet theater.
