Article on how to make lifelike marionette bodies

The Art of Making Lifelike Marionette Bodies
The Modern Mechanix blog has this old article on making marionette bodies. Originally published in Popular Science Monthly in 1936, the article is by Florence Fetherston Drake. The article has a lot of great information -- especially if you are actually making your own marionette. Of particular interest to the automaton-maker are the sections on materials, tools, and various types of joints.

Here is a link to the full article on The Art of Making Lifelike Marionette Bodies.
