This book was expanded from a lecture given at the Newport Film Society in 1930. White discusses the processes by which Reiniger created her "trick" or "silhouette" films by making puppets out of black paper and giving them jointed hinges for their limbs. There are photographic illustration plates of the puppets and stills from the films.
