A really fun to thumb through book, this is “The Hand-Carved Marionettes of Gustave Baumann by Ellen Zieselman, the essay by “Elizabeth Cunningham” and photography by Blair Clark. The book(let) is inscribed to “Ema Grace” on the first inside page by Ellen Zieselman and, by Elizabeth Cunningham. Published in 1999 by the Museum of Fine Arts. “Share Their World” was the title of the exhibit. The book includes “Making New Puppets,” “Nuts and bolts and spare parts….,” “How Did Gus Do It?” and, lots of notes from Gustave and friends.
The book is 9″ x 12,” in very good used condition with little wear but, note that there is an erasure at the top of the blue inscription page. The book is sturdy and readable.
