Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] question about stringing small marionettes...


I am returning to the List after several months away and appreciate re-connecting with the magic of puppets and puppet-makers... Regarding the question of stringing for small marionettes: it reminds me of Dwiggins' Marionettes (the book is out-of print and almost priceless :-) but I remember he created a small one-handed controller that resembled a "paddle" or "palette" shape...

Does anyone know how to obtain a decent picture or drawing of the Dwiggins
controller, so that I could make one and experiment with his "genius"...?

I saw one drawing in a kids book, but it was poorly done and the text instructions
were worse...

This could help the original questioner and me as well, and others also interested
in small marionettes.

thanks,

Allen
