Am I lucky to have incidentally stumbled upon this humble-looking and seemingly unknown book! This book teaches the basic methods of hand building. It does not teach you how to form, for that, you have to study anatomy, but the pinch pot method to make finger puppets and the fiber glass armatures were new to me. I'm glad I picked it up!
