Moondog Madrigal Puppet Show Book

book cover

Hardbound book

In the fall of 2010, Moriah Neils, An Exciting Event’s bassist (and gifted bookmaker), took it upon herself to join me in designing a handmade book version of the Moondog Madrigal Puppet Show script. Moriah designed the physical book and I drew the illustrations and edited the story; together we formatted the text. Then, in January 2011, the entire An Exciting Event cast spent its “free time” between rehearsals folding, sewing, and piling dozens of softbound books, in a rainbow of colors, which we sold at our three Boston Moondog Show performances. When Moriah went back home to Seattle, she made twelve heirloom-quality hardbound copies, one for each performer.


We think the script serves beautifully as curl-up-with-a-blanky-and-some-cocoa-and-your-favorite-set-of-maracas reading material, and we still have many copies of the softbound book. If you are interested in purchasing one, please contact me, and I will send you one, for $20 (plus shipping).
