A Manual of Hand Puppet Manipulation & More

A Manual of Hand Puppet Manipulation & More


A delightful new publication from Charlemagne Press of Lettie Connell Schubert's classic work on hand/glove puppet manipulation accompanied by line drawings and much more (the stage; the puppet;experiments and exercises;active movements;props and scenery;mood;movement;bibliography). This is quite the best introduction to hand puppet manipulation and should be in every puppeteer's library. The foreword is by puppet collector and colleague, Alan Cook, who provides an overview of her life and work. In addition there is one on her Essays and Articles, and another on her Scripts (including "Romance", "Runaway of the Princess", "Real Princess", "Little Red Riding Hood", "Benny Bunny", "Mrs witherspoon's Busy Day") plus some performance reviews. 234pp. A5 paperback. 13 b/w illustrations.
