Top Customer Reviews
If you do judge a book by its cover and appearance to some extent - like this reviewer - you won't be disappointed. The pictures used are exquisite, and will assuredly pique the interests of the interested even further. Aesthetically, this work is quite pleasing.
While the intended scope of this book wasn't fine art criticism and appreciation, it wouldn't have hurt to have included some of each. The photos of puppetory productions used point conclusively to an author who has likely mastered these loftier concepts. To close the circle, some commentary about why certain productions have excelled would have been welcomed, as opposed to discussing only technical pitfalls. Unlike presentational theater, puppetry is far more technical in nature, but it is a fine art medium also and more of its practitioners should have the initiative to promote it as such.
One of the best primers currently available, but it begs for a new edition.
