About the Author:

Christopher Finch was born in Guernsey in the British Channel Islands, and now lives in Los Angeles. He is an artist and photographer who had one-person shows in New York and California, and he is the author of almost thirty nonfiction books, including the bestsellers Rainbow: The Stormy Life of Judy GarlandThe Art of Walt DisneyJim Henson: The Works, and Norman Rockwell's America.

From Booklist:

At the time of his death in 1990, Jim Henson had created some of the world's most beloved characters, invigorated the d{‚}emod{‚}e art of puppeteering, and achieved in TV and films critical and commercial success unheard of since the heyday of Walt Disney. This oversize, colorful volume, sure to delight Henson's many fans, traces his career from local TV in the mid-1950s through the triumphs of Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, his leap into movies (The Muppet Movie, The Dark Crystal, etc.), and late projects like Fraggle Rock. The book also covers Henson's little-known forays into experimental film and the contributions of his Creature Shop puppetmakers to non-Henson movies. The authorized nature of this project gave Finch access to fascinating archival materials, such as behind-the-scenes photos. Unfortunately, it also results in an annoying lack of critical detachment and a one-dimensional portrait of Henson. Even so, Finch convincingly portrays Henson's visionary dedication to the craft of puppetry. The continuing popularity of Kermit, Big Bird, and Henson's other creations ensures that this showcase of them will be in demand for many years to come. Gordon Flagg
