Subject: [Puptcrit] Shadow Puppets

Happy Holidays to all! 


I have many books on shadow puppets expecially from Asia or to use in the
class room  but I've never seen a lot of material on the shadow puppets of
the 17th and 18th Century in France or other parts of Europe (besides
Lottie's wonderful book). 


Perhaps in one book I find a few pictures and then in another book a chapter
but how I long to see detailed designs or even an entire book or a website.
So does anyone know of anything like that on the "ombres chinoise"? I would
even consider going to a library almost anywhere for detailed designs or
puppets from the period. 


Thank you so much.
