This evening we are launching our Amazon Bookstore as part of our Books page, which gives us a great opportunity to show you some books which you may not have come across.
There is the four volume set, Ingenious Mechanisms, which can be found on most serious automata makers bookshelves, and a whole host of other books devoted to mechanisms, such as the lovely little volume, 507 Mechanical Movements. If you want to get some inspiration and get making, Rodney Frost’s latest book, Creative Kinetics is worth a look.
There are also books on cardboard engineering and even some novels which include automata.
If you’re tired of shopping and just want to try making some Pop-up Cards, Robert Sabuda’s site has some useful techniques.
