In our community theatre we often have people willing to work on. set construction, but they often build something that is too big, overweight and overbuilt and with no attention to the design graphs or knowledge of how to construct stage sets.

We want to buy one or two of the best and most comprehensive set construction books that are up-to-date--now, not how it was done 75 years ago(no soaking muslin in glue, or styrofoam trees, etc.). We also do not want to spend a bundle. Will someone make us a couple of good suggestions. There are so many available, but if one hasn't used a particular one, it is hard to judge the value. Is there a set construction "bible?"
