Shadow puppets, Kabong, and more
Puppets are as old as history. Many cultures, including Laos, have developed their own special styles and techniques of puppetry. Ann Martin's lively book tells the history of this distinctive art form, with a special emphasis on Asian puppets.
We hope her book will not only entertain readers, but will also increase interest in a traditional and culturally rich form of entertainment that here, as everywhere, is threatened by television.
