Puppetry Journal

I remember the day when the Puppeteer's of America "powers that be" would not even recognize ventriloquism as a form of puppetry. But today, The Puppetry Journal, thanks to correspondent, Bob Abdou, often contains articles about ventriloquists and ventriloquism. Finally!
The Fall, 2010 issue of The Puppetry Journal contains such an article written by Abdou. Included in his two page article is several paragraphs on figure makers, including Frank Marshall, with the photo you see at left. Frank bridged puppetry and ventriloquism himself, by building both ventriloquist figures as well as marionettes, hand puppets, Punch and Judy characters and more.
Today I am awarding this Puppetry Journal issue to: Donna Calise.
