Martin Stevens was one of the great North American puppeteers - creating such notable productions as "The Passion Play", "Joan of Arc", and "Taming of the Shrew". Steve, as he was affectionately called, was a frequent performer and teacher at the national festivals of the Puppeteers of America. In the 1950's he wrote a correspondence course with nineteen published lessons plus a final session written specifically for each student. Here are all the published lessons plus all the known final session.
"It is a happy day that this material is once again visible and available to nudge young puppeteers to find their own way of seeing and doing shows. Bravo to "Steve." George Latshaw in the Puppetry Journal, Spring, 1998
