19th century Italian glove-puppet show
Over the past months there’s been much written about puppets at the Artlog by way of offering encouragement to those taking part in guest curator Peter Slight’s Puppet Challenge. In fact between us Peter and I have written so much, that I’ve decided to offer links for easy access to posts that may have been missed first time around, plus links to some puppet-themed items from my archive, written before the challenge. To save crowding, I’ve made two posts. Today we kick off with my collected puppet posts, and Peter’s will follow on Friday.

Excellent idea as I know I’ve missed posts. Incidentally, is there a chance you might consider adding a share button for Twitter, Google etc. For those of us who enjoy and want to promote your posts, it would make life much simpler! For me, in particular, it would lesson the number of copies, pastes and clicks for my poor ‘ol fingers.
OK, when I’ve a moment I’ll look into how to do that. Thanks for the suggestion.
I had to check myself because every time I make an adjustment on WP, I immediately forget how it was done! Go to Settings, go down & choose Sharing. On the page that appears, scroll down until you see Sharing Buttons. Under this will be a section called Enabled Services. Drag the icons of the services you want to include either to the right-hand where they’ll be hidden under the Share Button or to the left which means the buttons will show individually. Hope that helps!
That’s a great help, and I thank you. I’ll go take a look this evening, when I’ve finished work. (Just spinning past the study on my way down from the studio to the kitchen for a coffee to keep me going, and taking a quick look at my e-mails en route!)
UPDATE: Done. Many thanks for all your help.
That’s useful! I like to do the same sort of thing now and then–gather up related posts. Probably you ought to have an index category…
Do you know chethams.org? Was thinking of you when noodling about… I found it by way of looking at purchases of alchemical treatises. Here’s another oddity that you would find interesting: Columbine, Harlequin, pygmy revels!
Thank you for that link. The ‘Pygmy Revels’ are a delight. I love chapbooks.
Wonderful idea.. Especially for those of us who are not online on daily basis, it’s so easy to miss posts… Thanks to you and Peter for all your efforts here.
Thank you Hussam. Much appreciated.
excellent idea, thank you!
I can hardly believe how much I’ve written about puppets and puppetry at the Artlog. Hope at least some of it will be of use to those taking part in the Puppet Challenge.
