9781847970558: Pelham Puppets (Crowood Collectors' Series)

Complete with reminiscences by professional puppeteers and instructions for string untangling, here is a comprehensive history of these fascinating puppets that have reflected society and social change through the latter part of the 20th century. The Pelham Puppets company was formed to provide a vibrancy and color that had long been lacking in the lives of children—and adults. The puppets produced ranged from fairytale characters, such as kings, queens, and wicked witches, through loveable animals such as Wags the dog and Muffin the mule. An absolute must for collectors, this book explains the development of the puppets and the different types and their related terminology. Enlivened by lavish color photography throughout, together with contemporary illustrations, newsletters, and other memorabilia, the book provides a fascinating insight into the world of Pelham Puppets. Topics covered include the story of the Pelham company, the boxes and packaging, the manufacturing process, and insight into the world of Pelham Puppets collectors.
