James, UCLA's veteran properties master, has produced a valuable guide for theater craftspeople at all levels of proficiency. Although no single volume could exhaust this vast subject, James has obviously chosen his material with care. Professional tricks are offered, as well as very specific information to guide the novice. Excellent photographs and precise instructions abound, making this a marked improvement over Motley's Theater Props (1975) and Jacquie Govier's Create Your Own Stage Props (Prentice-Hall, 1984). James's style and humor enhance this extremely clear, comprehensive manual. Andi Lyons, SUNY at Albany
