From Mr. D: You are asking about the "Ventriloquism Revealed" books that were printed with the names and photos a individual ventriloquists on the cover. The inside pages of the book were written by me and illustrated by David J. Miller. They were written to introduce people to the art of ventriloquism - what it was, how it was accomplished, and how it could be used. The book also informed the reader about the NAAV (North American Association of Ventriloquists) who was sponsor of the book. I was President of the NAAV. I believe we printed something like 20,000 copies and sold them in lots of 100. This book publishing arrangement with ventriloquists was discontinued when the NAAV folded as an organization (2004).
Kudos to you for sharing your skill and fun with your grandchild. What a great gift and legacy!
