Yes, I am the sort of puppet nerd who looks up expensive hand-carved marionettes he cannot afford to buy or plans in his head a trip to Prague so that he can see a performance of their Marionette Theatre.

I have had a fascination with marionettes ever since I was a boy and saw a Vardo that could transform into a puppet theatre at a local amusement park. I would watch performance after performance of marionette shows; not even caring to ride rides.

I have decided that since the two places one can most often find me are either the library or the forest that I would combine them and build my own library in the wood. Here are the artist's rendering of what I hope to begin construction on. (illustration by Zvij)

At the root of all fairy tales, all folklore, all myths are an attempt to find meaning in mystery. The process to begin to understand "Why?" begins with the words, "Once upon a time . . . "

Yes, Brother Ambrose, we deeply appreciate your helping us complete this illuminated manuscript but could you possibly draw more Saints and less faces on butts?

Forget your knight in shining armor. No need for a princess fair. Instead, just give me a sorceress to eternally imprison me in a tree in an enchanted forest. Just normal relationship goals.

Hans Christian Andersen placed his characters in such dire circumstances to reflect the traumas he endured in his own life: being raised in poverty, losing his father, and having to briefly work in a factory at age 11 to support his mother.
