Famous color woodcut printmaker Gustave Baumann was a superb wood-carver who was captivated by puppet theater. In the 1930s Baumann carved a collection of marionettes for plays he wrote about New Mexico's cultural heritage. Featuring twenty-five marionettes photographed from the permanent collection of the New Mexico Museum of Art, this entertaining book tells the story of Baumann's theater, describing in detail the plays, sets, and costuming, and highlights the extraordinary wood-carving artistry of this master.
