King Leer: A Tragedy in Five Puppets.

Iowa City, IA: Naughty Dog Press, 2018. Limited Edition. "Five puppets in a boxed set, four of the puppets have quotations from our 45th and current president. The 2016 election results turned my thoughts to the character of King Lear and from there they descended to King Leer. If Hillary Clinton had been elected maybe I would have gravitated to MacBeth. I decided to use the President’s own words against him. Happily, I had puppet knowledge to draw on. Over the last year, I worked out the full set of five forms. Each puppet has been made with the materials appropriate to their nature, three of the puppets are paper, one is cloth and the other is a sock. The puppets are contained in a set of stacked boxes with an accompanying pamphlet." Fine in Fine Archival Box. Bright and unmarred. Set of puppet made with various materials, each contains some element if printed paper with quotations; pamphlet included incorporating all quotation and project history; multishelf box howls all bits. Various sizes. Numbered, limited edition, this being 14 of 25. Item #9575

Price: $850.00
