I love the Edwardian paper theater and have done modern versions featuring my family as paper dolls; re-visiting the panorama; making paper bag puppets; flannel board storytelling.
I love making puppet theaters. I teach cartooning and puppetry and clowning.
Happy you found them-after my 6 films made at ZDF Munich were stolen and my repertoire-My Little Mermaid 84 puppet production sets and costumes-Truck exploded all burnt- I sued cost $3000- Lawyers helped them get away free-claiming Bankrupt-I lost everything.
What a catastrophe! I remember losing my puppet that first came to life and it was a year before I found another. Hope you were able to come back with a new puppets, but it's so sad when old friends were lost...
