Hand Puppets and String Puppets  by Waldo S. Lanchester
Book overview
Originally published in the 1940s, the author, a master of his craft, has clearly and concisely explained the making of both hand and string puppets, and also clearly shown how they may be used in appropriate settings. With the idea of giving asistance to the novice, and help to the more advanced student, the book is written in plain and concise language; the diagrams and photographs should explain the intricacies of puppet-making, leaving the individual to fill in the details from his own imagination. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. Contents Include: Glove Puppets - String Puppets - Puppets with Wire Frame Foundation - Carved Wooden Puppets - Dressing The Puppets - Controls - The Glove Puppet Stage - The Play.
