Book Description Harry N. Abrams Inc, New York, 1970. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. First edition. 232pp. Folio [36 cm] Black cloth over boards with the title stamped in gilt on the backstrip, and a gilt stamped marionette vignette on the front cover. With Illustrations throughout, many tipped-in, and in full color. Ex-library, with the usual library markings (legitimately deaccessioned). The cloth along the edges of the boards is sporadically frayed. Two of the tipped-in plates are detached, but present. From the Foreword- "William Addison Dwiggins: type designer, calligrapher, typographer, illustrator, and writer- his name is among the foremost contributors to the printing arts. But, save for an occasional engraving, none of these professional activities gave him opportunity to work with wood, a medium he had loved from early boyhood. And so it was that an experimental marionette theatre provided an outlet not only for his talent for wood carving, but for other lines of creative activity as well. His theatre was 'experimental' in the sense that his interest lay not particularly in marionettes, but in the mechanical and artistic problems involved in making them.". Bookseller Inventory # 51522
