The Puppetry Handbook

puppethandbook

The Puppetry Handbook by Anita Sinclair is the best how-to puppet book I've found. It is clearly written and has whimsical illustrations. The book covers both building and performing in all types of puppetry, including hand puppets, marionettes, shadow puppets, walk arounds, and rod puppets.

The book is available through the Puppetry Store, a service of the Puppeteers of America, or if you live in Australia you can order it directly from Anita Sinclair.
