Paper Automata
A collection of working paper models to cut out and make. As the mechanisms are operated, the hopping sheep hop energetically and the pecking hen pecks into its feeder. The motley man bows and acknowledges the applause he has earned and the flying fish flaps and undulates its wings. Each of the mechanisms uses a different principle to generate motion.

I didn't know about Strangeness and Charm. It's very nice. I like that it is printable as a zine. That's cool!

Thanks :-) It's been a while! - RI

Strangeness & Charm is cool.

Shame about the expletive.

I would have printed the "Logic Bomb" for my 5 year old Grandson, who loves Robots; but I would be the one who had to explain to his Mum, where he had got his new word from!

Perhaps I could edit it to read "Ha funny Ha"

As per your request, a non-profane version is now available to download on the site :-) - RI

The book „Amazing Paper Pets“ pleased me very. Today I received the parcel from Amazon.de. Astonished, six models, both sides are printed, notched and cut, for the unbelievable price of only 8 Euros. (free forwarding expenses). Who would like to come thus fast to a finished model, to which I can recommend that much.

a while back you were doing models for an office automata book with models like  the newtons cradle and a sleeping worker since the book was never published is there anyway these models can be made available?
