Really, this is by accident, during my researches, that I discovered this “hidden” face of the puppetry: The Patents

This is a very fantasy world, when we are seeing the inventiveness developed in this field for many years (the older patent that I have found is over 120 years old).

Without, of course, any aim to push the people to copy, I think that it's interesting, for the puppeteers and puppet fans (young or older) to see what has been done before them, when the computer, the 21st century means, Internet, los emails were not existing, hoping that they could find their own inspiration within the works carried out by their “predecessors”, who developped mechanisms, systems which, for some of them, are still used today.

So, I put online.....

At least, this is an excellent way to see very nice technical drawings about puppetry.


Realmente, es por casualidad, durante mis búsquedas, que descubrí esta cara oculta de la marioneta: Las Patentes

Es un mundo muy fantástico, cuando se ve la inventiva desarrollada en este campo desde muchos años (la patente la más antigua que he encontrado tiene más de 120 años)

Sin ningún deseo, claro, de empujar la gente a copiar, pienso que es interesante, para los titiriteros y aficionados (jóvenes o más viejos) de ver lo que se ha hecho antes de ellos, cuando computadora, medios del siglo 21, Internet, los emails no existieron, esperando que ellos podrán encontrar su propia inspiración en el trabajo llevado a cabo por sus “predecesores”, quienes han desarrollado mecanismos, sistemas que, para algunos de ellos, siguen todavía usados.

Pues, pongo en linea....

Al menos, es una excelente manera de ver muy lindos dibujos técnicos respecto a la marioneta.
