Rodney Peppe avec Automata and Mechanical Toys

Automata and mechanical toys delight children and adults alike with the beauty of their design and the excitement of their movement. This book explains how the mechanisms work and celebrates many leading makers. The book covers the history of automata and mechanical toys, including the early inventors from Hero of Alexandria, through the mechanical marvels of the 18th and 19th centuries, to contemporary automata. Also included is advice on how to get started; tools and materials required; and techniques together with step-by-step instructions and theme projects based on the author's 12 days of Christmas.
