Written by one of the most creative contemporary artistes of the Puppet Theatre, this book is concerned with aesthetics in the world of puppetry. The author has shown how the space and time in puppetry can be discussed at the same forum as cosmic space and different orders of time.

The author, while demonstrating his deep understanding of the history, theory and aesthetics of puppet theatre, explores the process of creating this art from its inception and presents different themes and characters using different techniques, ranging from the marionette to rod, glove and shadow.
