the magic pudding

yesterday i used my lunch hour to visit the exhibition gallery at the State Library (NSW). They had an exhibition of huge watercolours painted by Norman Lindsay in 1959 of his characters from his childrens book The Magic Pudding. You could see from the paintings where Lindsay had drawn his outline sketch and none of the changes had been erased.

there were also marionettes and hand puppets created for a puppet show

and a short film on how the puppets were made and about the puppet show itself

i recommend a visit - I have linked the title to the relevant page on the library website - take a look
