Paperhand: Puppet Interventions with Cardboard Cloth And Clay
This visually-stunning book is a lookback on Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s two decades of giant puppet pageantry, community-building and genre-defying art. Co-creative founders/directors Donovan Zimmerman and Jan Berger share memories of the genesis of Paperhand and its 23 completely original and enchanting puppet pageants, plus interventions, parades and glimpses behind-the-scenes, revealing how they deftly weave together the strands of art and environmental activism into “artivism” that inspires audiences to revere and protect the natural world.
It’s a deep dive into the myth, the ethos and beauty behind their craft and is a giant love letter to the Paperhand community of ingenious dreamers, makers, musicians and puppeteers.
