Kamishibai Library of Swaps has been updated 2014

For those interested in Kamishibai storytelling, there is a Library of Swaps hosted on UK Storyteller Derek Carpenter's site. To get a story out, you have to put one in. However if you are not the artist type and don't have any original stories to exchange, you can negotiate with the maker.

Derek's website has just been renovated. Its worth a visit, as not only can you check out the library, you can learn a little about this form of Japanese paper theatre storytelling.

Pictured is Derek on Skype, at home in Newcastle on Tyne, having just received (as pdfs) a set of story cards which have been sent from Australia. Magic or what!
