This beautiful book clearly explains the process from making the puppets to putting them on strings and bringing them alive. Detailed step-by-step instructions are given to make three marionettes—a walking bird, a dancer and a wooden man—each using different tools and materials, with progressively more tricky techniques. A showcase of marionettes from around the world illustrates the variety and richness of this ancient art. Includes an overview of all the different forms of puppet—hand, rod, shadow and marionette—and examples of how marionettes are made using everything from cardboard tubes to CAD 3D printing
