Making a Shadowgraph Show by Eric Hawkesworth

Some simple hand movements, a linen screen, and a battery-operated projection light are the basic ingredients of an ideal home entertainment. Once learned, all the primary hand shadow effects can be easily adapted to create other figures and characters. These can be still further varied by the use of cardboard cut-out accessories, making possible a whole new range of effects whereby a dachshund can quickly become a crocodile, and a pop-singer change to a policeman.

The author explains, with the help of diagrams, how to make and operate a shadowgraph screen. He describes the basic hand formations, and his clear line-drawings can be easily copied for the cardboard cut-outs. Each routine is designed to lead the beginner a step further, and enough basic patter is given to weld the action into a compact and entertaining shadow play.
