Book: The Complete Book of Marionettes

The Complete Book of Marionettes
Recently, I decided to start reading up on marionette construction techniques. After years of thinking about it, I finally bought the book Making and Manipulating Marionettes. I would certainly recommend it! It's a beautiful book with many detailed construction techniques.

I do not have the book shown here, but it gets a few good reviews, seems very comprehensive, and those Dover books on art instruction are almost always a great value.

From the book description:
Absorbing, entertaining guide provides all the information needed to construct puppets and puppet theaters, including valuable advice on making heads, bodies, wigs, and puppet clothing, manipulating the puppet, setting up and furnishing a stage, lighting scenes, and building miniature pieces of furniture. Complete script for Beauty and the Beast. Over 200 illustrations.

Here is where you can check out The Complete Book of Marionettes.
