Long before Netflix or video games, these tiny paper theaters served as home entertainment, outlets for imagination crafted for young people but popular with adults, too.

Theaters made of paper for Art Thursday. I love these so much I could go on and on. I saw one with a paper pit orchestra in front...how great is that??
Mon Theatre, a short-lived but prolific twice-monthly magazine, was published in Paris by Albert Mericand. It provided characters and scenes for this large Art Nouveau style theater.

These are wonderful. Glad you included the Little Red Riding Hood one because it shows the rods used to move the characters.
And definitely look at them enlarged...it's worth it!
