Title: Puppetry Handbook (2nd edition)
Author: Sinclair, Anita
Price: $75.00

This book introduces you to the major principles and techniques of puppetry.

Puppetry is perhaps the greatest way of integrating all the Arts. It welcomes Music, Dance, Visual Design, Language, Literature, Mask, Film and Television. Puppetry loves Clowning and Circus skills, light shows, story telling and magic. Puppetry is a rich, fertile sphere of communication, visual stimulation, excitement, provocation, fantasy and fun!

Puppets are active participants, not static decorative objects. This book examines methods of design, construction and employment of puppets intended for use in a dramatic context. It explores ways in which puppets can be brought to life: puppets with things to do, people to meet and remarkable stories to tell!

As well as the detailed text, this book contains over 500 technical and informative drawings by the author. It is a manual of instruction from cover to cover.
