Work with Other Publishers

Books and stuff produced by other publishers. Please note that there is no members discount on these items as they are out of my hands.

Paper Models That Rock!
Simple directions and complete materials make it a cinch for crafters ages 12 and up to construct these rocking paper automata. Six models include a nodding donkey, a gift box decked with a fluttering heart, a rocking robin, rolling bones that will tumble down an incline, a pair of tapping feet, and a tail-wagging dog.

Amazing Paper Pets
Six animated animals to cut out and make. Amazing Paper Pets is a collection of fun moving paper models to press out and make inlcuding Mexican Peck, Bob the Dog and Cat Walk.

Everything you need to make amazing paper machines! Automata are animated toys that use several basic mechanisms to come alive-and they're made completely out of paper! Using the ingenious punch-out designs included in Gizmos you can assemble six fantastic paper projects. only.

Paper Engineering & Pop–ups For Dummies 
…covers a wide range of projects, from greeting cards to freestanding models. Easy–to–follow, step–by–step instructions and dozens of accompanying diagrams help readers not only to complete the diverse projects in the book, but also master the skills necessary to apply their own creativity and create new projects, beyond the book′s pages.

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.
Paper Locksmith
A collection of three cut-out models of locks. They include three of the main varieties of lock: combination, mortice and "Yale". The models are colour-coded and are accompanied by a minibook describing the historical development of lock design and possibilities for the future.

Push Paper (Contributor)
Innovative, interesting, exciting: the work gathered in PUSH Paper, part of a stunningly designed new gallery series, is some of the best paper art being created today. Thirty contemporary paper artists, from world-renowned names to talented up-and-comers, all put their own spin on cutting, sculpture, installations, pop ups, paper toys and more. A vibrant question-and-answer section with the book's distinguished juror, Jaime Zollars and a biography of each showcased artist complete this visual feast of paper craft.


Adventures in 3D printing
Anything of interest not related to paper engineering.

Flying Pig 
My original website, now the home of printed paper animation kits from a variety of different artists including myself. 


Midi Hacker 
Experiments with midi music and the arduino micro controller. 


Strangeness and Charm 
Charming strangeness in webcomic form. Each comic strip can be downloaded and made into a mini-Zine booklet. Fun fun!
I've returned to and re-launched my webcomic after finally finding someone to look after the dog all day. Yay

      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“

    The book „Amazing Paper Pets“ pleased me very. Today I received the parcel from 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?
