Format: Paperback
This book does exactly what it says on the tin, or rather in the subtitle. It's a quirky colection of articulated paper puppets to make. They're of varying difficulty, but nothing too hard. They'd make great one-off birthday 'cards' too. Once you've cracked the methods, it's easy to apply them to your own ideas.

Wonderful Book that offers more on paper doll mechanics 26 Mar 2009
By Suzanne V. Ebeling-urban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book after buying the authors wonderfully whimsical paperdolls on ETSY. I'm an illustrator and have always loved making paper dolls and would like to create some to sell that can serve as wall ornamentation. This book helped me to figure out how I can do this, for those looking to make paper dolls from the author's designs, she offers her own designs in the book for the hobbyist to cut out and create.

Paper dolls are coming in to their own and I am busy working on some designs now. I think this book offers more info on how to construct a doll so they move mechanically and well.

I'd suggest all art doll creators, teachers, animation teachers, illustrators invest in this book if they want to animate their hand drawn characters or get their students involved in construction of 2-D characters that can move.

a world of puppetty excitement! 11 Feb 2009
By V. Burnett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
How we love this book! Crankbunny's off-beat sense of humor shows on every page of this book. That alone makes it worth purchasing, but the instructions and illustrations are also very clear and clever. Turns out, paper puppet making isn't all that difficult or expensive, but newbies will benefit from the confidence and encouragement this book provides.

Instructions include basic paper puppets with just a few joints, puppets with moving mouths, shadow puppets, puppets with pull tabs and even gift cards containing puppets or other movable parts.

Two big bonuses - both the front and back cover flaps include a full color, heavyweight, glossy puppet template for you to put together and play with while you dream up your own puppet characters. What fun!

Magical! 7 Sep 2009
By Latin Pod - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The artwork in this book is fantastic! It is like taking a tour through a magical kingdom, where fantasy and reality meet. Norma V. Toraya has provided templates that can be copied onto cardstock, colored, cut, and assembled into fully working puppets - there's even 2 gorgeous puppets that are ready to cut and assemble. However, a skilled artist could use the techniques provided to create original puppets. The materials are easily available in any art and/or crafts store. I highly recommend this book to school teachers, artists, doll makers, animators, and anyone who enjoys dramatics.

Paper Puppet Palooza: Techniques for Making Moveable Art Figures and Paper Dolls 6 Aug 2009
By Caroline Kunimura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Beautiful Art and a Beautiful Book! I enjoy this book and feel inspired to create my own characters. The author has wonderful stories for each of her paper people and offers tips for your own inspiration. This book offers detailed yet simple directions and even patterns. I bought it with the idea of making a moveable paper doll for a Christmas card and this book makes the idea attainable. If you're interested in paper crafting this is an excellent book to add to your collection and you'll use it for reference over and over again.
