From the book description:
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.
Anyone out there have this one? I'd like to know if you like it!
