Making and Manipulating Marionettes explains with clarity and precision the art of the marionette. Lavishly illustrated in colour throughout, it sets out detailed instructions for the making of marionettes both for plays and for acts in the variety tradition. All aspects of marionette design, construction and control are covered as well as rare insights into specialized designs and stringing techniques. It includes a wealth of technical illustrations and photographs, together with helpful tips and suggestions that reflect the author's extensive experience in making, and performing with, marionettes. Photographs of the work of other leading marionette makers and performers complement the author's collection, and photo sequences are used to illustrate many of the specialized acts such as juggler, trapeze artist, weight lifter, acrobats and the dissecting skeleton. David Currell is recognized as an international authority on puppet theatre; his books are regarded as standard works on the subject and widely praised for their clarity and attention to detail. -- dust cover.
