This early work is a fascinating read for entertainment enthusiasts. Thoroughly recommended for the bookshelf of the amateur or professional ventriloquist it contains a wealth of information that is still useful and practical today. Contents Include: So You Want To Be a Ventriloquist, From Witchcraft to Music Halls, The Voice-The Beginning of Ventriloquism, How To Build a Dummy-Part 1, How To Build a Dummy-Part 2, Mechanism for Realism-Part 1, Moving Mouth, Mechanism for Realism-Part 2, Moving Eyes, Painting the Dummy and Building the Body, Synchronization and Manipulation, Additional Manipulation, Character, Costume and Conversation, Routines and Sketches, Just for Fun, For Profit, and A Few Conclusions. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
