Making Moving Toys and Automata

Robert Race

Description

This beautiful book draws on Robert Race's extensive collection of traditional moving toys, looking at the ways the makers have achieved remarkable and varied results, often with very limited resources.

Each chapter begins by looking at the mechanisms and materials used in some of these traditional moving toys, goes on to consider possible variations and describes how to make a related moving toy. The book shows that designing and making these simple but wonderfully satisfying mechanical devices is fun, and that good results can be achieved in many different ways, using a variety of materials, tools and equipment.
